About Children's Hospital

The Virginia Commonwealth University Department of Pediatrics is dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate, state-of-the-art pediatric health care, research and education at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, a full-service children’s hospital within the VCU Medical Center. CHoR offers a robust continuum of pediatric services, research and education, and is the region’s only full-service children’s hospital. CHoR provides emergency, primary, secondary, advanced, tertiary and long-term care. CHoR has 11 locations across Central Virginia and provides more than 42 pediatric medical/surgical services.

There is energy and momentum around advancing children’s health in Richmond, and we have marked a new milestone. Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU recently opened a multi-story, high-tech ambulatory pavilion for pediatric services.  The new facility will meet the growing need for outpatient services for children in our community.

CHoR's outpatient pavilion is the largest, most advanced outpatient facility dedicated to children in the region. The new pavilion includes diagnostic and treatment services for children, bringing together the majority of outpatient pediatric services currently on the MCV campus to one location. It is designed to meet the unique health care needs of children, and to provide Richmond the most advanced and coordinated care possible:

The facility is a 640,000 square foot, multi-story building and includes a 7-story parking deck with more than 600 spaces.
The new pavilion houses 72 exam rooms arranged in clinic pods to optimize a multidisciplinary care model. Each pod includes 12 exam rooms, a treatment room, support space and a centralized clinical team.
The new pavilion features pediatric-dedicated imaging, surgical and endoscopy procedure rooms, as well as pediatric faculty offices.
The pavilion is designed with future expansion in mind. It can accommodate additional clinic pods and operating rooms, as demand for these services increases.

Virginia Commonwealth University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. Women, minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

When we break ground on a new facility, it’s about more than bricks and mortar. It’s just like we tell our children— it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Over the past three years, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU has increased pediatric faculty to more than 130 clinicians focused on 42 specialty areas and providing access to children’s health care from more than 11 locations throughout the region. It’s these dedicated physicians and an extensive network of pediatric-trained nurses, child-life specialists, therapists, social workers and ancillary medical staff, who will continue providing health care designed especially for children.
