VCU Health has been impacted by the global technology outage. As a result, some elective procedures have been postponed; those patients have been contacted. Other patient care services might experience disruptions or delays. We are working quickly to return to normal. Please contact your provider with questions about your care.

Donate to child life

The experience in a hospital can be scary for kids, their siblings and families. Our child life team helps patients and families adjust to and cope with the hospital or clinical setting, illness or injury and the treatments involved. Donations to child life help make the hospital more comfortable (and fun!) for kids.
