Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU

Richmond, VA

VCU broke ground September 10, 2012, on a $168 million Children’s Pavilion that will consolidate outpatient pediatric services and include a 615-space parking garage. The project, part of a multiphase project, will provide a safe and secure, yet welcoming, healthcare experience for its patients.

The Children’s Pavilion is the only comprehensive primary and subspecialty outpatient facility of its kind in central Virginia. As the main outpatient facility for the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, it is home to pediatric primary and subspecialty care, outpatient surgical services, resident, medical student and nursing education, pediatric medical care coordination, and clinical research studies.
