VCU-CMH makes plans for Oct. 14 grand opening

South Boston News / September 20, 2017
It started by partnering with VCU Health and our shared vision to bring the best in care close to home. Now that vision is a reality. The new VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital is here and it’s something we can all take pride in. Because it’s not just for the community, it’s by the community. We’ve been on this journey together from the start—dreaming, planning, and doing—and it’s time to celebrate the healthier community we’re building together.

We are inviting you to attend our Grand Opening Celebration on Oct. 14 at our new hospital located at 1755 North Mecklenburg Avenue starting at 9 a.m. with remarks from VCU Health leadership followed by an official ribbon cutting. From 10 a.m.–4 p.m. the building with be open to event attendees for self-guided tours.

Limited seating for the ribbon cutting ceremony will be available in front of the main entrance to the new hospital. There will also be limited parking onsite. Parking lots can be accessed by both entrances, one off North Mecklenburg Avenue/Highway 1 and the other off Route 138. If onsite parking lots become full there will be additional parking with vans available to shuttle attendees to the ceremony at the following locations: Fastenal, Hughes Supply, New Hope Baptist Church, and Virginia Quilting Company.

Informational books about the new facility will be distributed to attendees along with a commemorative coin. (Books and coins will be given out on a first come, first serve basis.) Refreshments will also be provided. An additional outside restroom trailer will be situated to the left of the ceremony. The new hospital will not officially open until November 11, 2017 and the Obstetrics department will officially open on Nov. 20.

Since the groundbreaking on Oct. 24, 2015, construction of the new VCU Health CMH has been under way. The 166,700 sq. ft. technologically-advanced facility will feature 70 private patient rooms. The facility will also include three operating room suites, a cesarean section suite, a 16-bay emergency department and an Obstetrics department with four LDRP rooms (Labor, Delivery, Recovery, Postpartum).

The new VCU Health CMH will have a permanent cardiac catheterization lab to provide the most advanced cardiac care in the region and a full complement of diagnostic services including MRI, CT, nuclear medicine, cardiac, vascular and pulmonary studies.
