Introducing the Wonder Tower—Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU's new home, specifically engineered to provide the children of Virginia with world-class pediatric care.
The world through a child’s eyes is a much different place — a place where imagination has no limits and nothing is impossible. But it’s also delicate and needs to be nurtured and protected.
So we started with a clean sheet of paper, the input of a dedicated team of caregivers, parents, community leaders, and yes, even kids, to create a place designed to meet the specific needs of children, while meeting the complex requirements to provide pediatric care at a world-class level. A center crafted to maximize their care, and minimize their fears. A unique place engineered to be the best experience for them, their families, their caregivers, and their Richmond community.
And the Wonder Tower is the result. Set to open in early 2023, the 500,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art inpatient facility features new operating rooms, imaging capacity, emergency department space, family amenities, and CHoR’s extraordinary team of caregivers, all custom designed to meet the huge needs of our littlest people.
As the only comprehensive, full-service children's hospital in the region, CHoR has been committed to providing quality care for all children regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Thanks to this passion for pediatric care, we were proud to be ranked among the nation’s top children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report Best Children’s Hospitals rankings for 2020-2021, with recognition in four specialties: cancer, nephrology, pulmonary, and urology.
To be able to have all of those resources accessible in one place is going to make life as a mom of a complex ‘kiddo’ 10 times easier.”Kim Hassmer,
Our children deserve the best we have to offer both in terms of care and experience — and that is just what this new facility will provide for the entire region.”Delores McQuinn,
The Wonder Tower is specifically built for kids. But it cannot be built without your help. Bringing world class people and programs to CHoR has been our focus over the last decade. Now, with your help, we have the opportunity to create a truly collaborative, world-class facility to match the caliber of care happening inside.
So we invite you to join us on our mission to protect the wonder of childhood. This initiative begins with all of us putting the children of Virginia in the center, and building a new world around them. It’s a mission that will make a huge difference for the kids and families of Richmond, with room for everybody to play a meaningful part. So please consider joining us today. The children are counting on you.
