For more than 80 years, Children’s Hospital Foundation has been dedicated to funding and advocating for pediatric initiatives that improve the status of health care and the quality of life for children in our region. We provide support for the programs and initiatives of Children’s Hospital of Richmond (CHoR) and the more than 50,000 children it serves each year, as well as other pediatric health care programs in the community. CHoR is a full service children’s hospital that offers a robust continuum of pediatric services, research and education.
Children’s Hospital Foundation depends on the support of individuals, businesses and other organizations to help us continue our mission of supporting excellence in health care for children. To learn more about how you can help, visit www.chfrichmond.org.
In fiscal year 2009, Children’s Hospital provided services to more than 7,500 children over the course of 66,000 outpatient therapy and clinic visits.In 2008, Children’s Hospital completed construction to expand the Transitional Care Unit (TCU), which doubled our capacity to provide inpatient long term care to children with lifelong and progressive chronic conditions. The TCU is the only hospital program of its kind in Central Virginia.Over the last several years, Children’s Hospital has continued to grow by expanding the therapy center in Glen Allen and opening new locations in Petersburg and Bon Air.In addition to our core programs, Children’s Hospital hosts a number of outreach programs to educate children in the region about health and safety, fire prevention, nutrition and dental hygiene.
Children’s Hospital and the Virginia Commonwealth University Health System are in formal talks to explore opportunities to jointly address the critical need for advancing the full range of specialty pediatric care in the greater Richmond area. Currently, the organizations are researching and analyzing financial, operational and programmatic issues involved in joint operations of the two organizations under the VCU Health System umbrella.A primary driver for joining operations with VCU Health System is to attract pediatric specialists to the Richmond area and establish strong pediatric programs.Children’s Hospital Foundation will remain intact and become an independent Foundation, dedicated to raising funds to support pediatric health care just as it has in the past.Due to increasing demand for therapy services, the Petersburg Therapy Center is set to expand into additional space during fiscal year 2011.
Through 10 locations in the Richmond area and Fredericksburg, CHoR provides a comprehensive scope of services including emergency, primary, secondary, advanced tertiary, rehabilitative and long-term care. Children in Central Virginia can benefit from the widest range of pediatric services—from well-child checkups to the only Level 1 Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in the area. CHoR offers 149 pediatric beds and a full complement of specialized medical/surgical services, along with a comprehensive range of therapy and support services.
With nearly 1,350 full-time and 1,200 part-time employees who provide nationally recognized care to children, CHoR has the largest number of pediatric specialists, therapists and nurses in Central Virginia.
