VCU Health System to build $350M children's hospital

Richmond-based Virginia Commonwealth University Health System and Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU announced plans to build a $350 million children's hospital connected to the outpatient Children's Pavilion at VCU's main campus in downtown Richmond.

The facility will include 86 licensed beds and six observation beds, though it will have the capacity to increase to 125 beds.

"A comprehensive children's pavilion that is designed in partnership with children's healthcare providers from across the region and state, as well as with families, will give all children a focus of hope during what may be the most difficult journey of their lives," said Marsha Rappley, MD, CEO of VCU Health System.

Construction of the hospital will begin in the spring and is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
