C.A.R.E Building opens in South Hill

South Boston News
The C.A.R.E. Building / February 07, 2018
VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital’s new C.A.R.E. Building will open its doors to the public on Monday, Feb. 12 with an open house event planned March 6 at the facility.

The name C.A.R.E. reflects the services offered in this modern comprehensive medical center — Clinics, Administration, Rehabilitation and Education. The center has been made possible by generous donations from the community, employees, and the financial commitment from Richmond-based VCU Health, which opened the adjoining $93 million hospital facility in South Hill in October 2017.

The C.A.R.E building will be home to the following VCU Health CMH physician practices: CMH Cardiology Services; CMH ENT & Pulmonology Services; CMH Family Care Center; CMH Orthopedic Service; CMH Pain Management Services; CMH Surgical Services; CMH Urological Services; and CMH Women’s Health Services. The new facility will also house a new family dental clinic that is set to open late 2018.

The C.A.R.E. Building is adjacent to the new hospital which is located at 1755 N. Mecklenburg Avenue in South Hill.

Providers of the eight practices that are moving will begin seeing patients in the C.A.R.E. Building Monday; the practices’ previous locations will be closed. The new phone number for each practice will be (434) 584-CARE (2273).

The open house event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 6 from 4-6 p.m. Attendees will get the opportunity to tour the new facility, meet the providers and staff, enjoy refreshments, receive giveaways and register for door prizes. There will be two door prizes given away, one an Apple iPad and the other a photo session with Robert Harris Photography including one 16x20 Gallery Canvas Portrait valued at $895 (once registered, you do not have to be present to win).
