To a child, it feels like a space made for them, full of colors and imaginative touches. To a parent, it’s where their child gets the state-of-the-art care they need, when they need it most.
Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU’s Children’s Tower is now open and ready to serve Richmond families as the region’s premiere pediatric inpatient, emergency + trauma care hospital. Years in the making, it took extensive research into pediatric healthcare best practices — and the support of the community — to make the 16-story, $420 million hospital a reality.
The one-of-a-kind facility provides:
- One million square feet of specialized child-centered healthcare, when combined with the adjacent Children’s Pavilion (that’s an entire city block)
- The region’s only Level 1 pediatric trauma center + emergency department with 24/7 access to pediatric specialists
- Spacious, fully-private acute and intensive care rooms
- Countless child-focused touches, such as playrooms, an indoor children’s garden, teen lounges, a family gym, imaginative murals, interactive installations, and so much more*
