We’re building your new Children’s Hospital

Set to open in 2023, the 500,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art inpatient facility was thoughtfully designed with the understanding that children see the world differently. Featuring new operating rooms, increased imaging capacity, emergency department space, family amenities, and CHoR's extraordinary team of caregivers, we're fostering a child-centered community dedicated to providing the special care children need, in a safe space crafted especially for them.

Even in the middle of a global pandemic, children still get hurt playing, still get seriously injured in car accidents, and still need to continue treatment for cancer. And parents still need the peace of mind that comes from knowing there’s a world-class, nationally-ranked children’s hospital right here in our community.

Making an impact

In a single year, more than 60,000 children receive care at CHoR, and Children’s Hospital Foundation helps ensure that these children continue to have world class pediatric health care close to home, right here in Central Virginia. 

Children and families come to us from Virginia, across the U.S., and often from out of the country. We cover nearly every pediatric health care need under the sun – from casts to cancer – from simple to complex – we do everything in our power to give kids a shot at a healthy future.

Lauren’s story

"In that moment, days after receiving a devastating cancer diagnosis, my husband and I realized that while this is the scariest and probably the most challenging time of our lives, our job was not only to get the best care for Lauren but to enable a childhood here at the hospital and throughout her treatment." - Marisa Cherry, Lauren's mom.
