VCU Health System

Every day, there's a new discovery at the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. Whether it's a patient who undergoes an innovative, life-saving procedure or a clinical researcher who finds promise in a new cancer treatment, exciting medical advances are taking place. The only academic medical center in central Virginia, the VCU Medical Center is on the forefront of health care, providing patients with the most progressive treatments and medical technology available.

Our medical staff includes internationally recognized physicians and highly skilled nurses who provide state-of-the-art, comprehensive patient care. Many of our physicians have been ranked among the top doctors in Richmond in specialties ranging from allergies to vascular surgery. The medical center has been ranked among the top centers nationwide in U.S.News & World Report's "America's Best Hospitals" and also has the Magnet designation for excellence in nursing services by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

MCV Hospitals is the teaching hospital component of the VCU Medical Center, which also includes outpatient clinics and MCV Physicians, a 600-physician faculty group practice.

The 779-bed VCU Medical Center is a regional referral center for the state and is the region's only Level I Trauma Center. It has the only hospital in Virginia devoted solely to critical care. The 15-level Critical Care Hospital is the cornerstone of excellence in patient care for Virginias, providing the latest treatments for seriously ill and injured patients.

The VCU Medical Center recently joined with Children's Hospital to form the new Children's Hospital of Richmond (CHoR). The full-service children's hospital offers a robust continuum of pediatric services, research and education. CHoR has two main campuses and several satellite outpatient and therapy centers in the greater Richmond area and Fredericksburg.

On the Critical Care Hospital's ground floor, CHoR recently opened its new pediatric emergency room, the only one in central Virginia to offer 24-hour access to all pediatric specialists. The state-of-the-art facility is designed to meet the needs of children and families by providing the highest level of pediatric care in the region.

The medical center also offers nearly 200 specialty clinical areas, many of national and international note. In addition to multidisciplinary centers for cancer, cardiology, neurosurgery and transplantation, the center offers virtually every form of contemporary medical service. In particular, the medical center has received international recognition for early diagnosis and treatment of chest pain and strokes, organ transplant, head and spinal cord trauma research, burn and wound healing, neonatal intensive care and genetic research, as well as cancer research, treatment and rehabilitation.

Making medical history is only part of the reason for the excellent reputation of the VCU Medical Center. Thanks to the dedication, compassion and expertise of its more than 8,000 health care staff - from doctors, nurses and resident medical staff to support personnel and administrators - the center has enjoyed a consistently high patient satisfaction rating.
