Children's Hospital of Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth University on Wednesday celebrated a new standard of pediatric outpatient care with the ribbon-cutting for its new Children's Pavilion.
The pavilion, located on Broad Street between 10th and 11th streets, is the largest, most advanced outpatient facility dedicated to children in the region. The culmination of more than five years of planning and preparation, the new pediatric facility marks a milestone in advancing children's health care and meets the growing need for coordinated outpatient services.
"VCU's $200 million investment in the new outpatient Children's Pavilion is an important contribution to the health of Virginia's families," said Gov. Terry McAuliffe. "The connection between healthy children, a healthy workforce and a healthy economy cannot be overstated. As we work to build a new Virginia economy, it is essential that we make the strategic investments necessary to ensure that all of our citizens have access to high-quality medical services."
With 90 percent of pediatric care occurring on an outpatient basis, ease of access is not just convenient, it's critical. In addition to leading-edge clinical care, the building also features collaborative spaces to enhance the research and teaching pillars on which CHoR was built.
