Over 200 people attended the event to celebrate the new facility, but if you weren’t there, be sure to check out this video:”I have often said that I have the very best job at VCU. I love being a pediatrician, and I’m proud of our team here at CHoR and our dedicated community partners, many of whom trained right here. We’re committed to training the next generation of nurses, and dentists and physicians, surgeons, pharmacists and others who care for children,” said Dr. Rubin, professor and chair of Pediatrics at VCU and physician in chief of Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU. “The new children’s pavilion will not only help bring together all of the clinical care but will help bring together these teachers and learners.”In addition to speeches from leadership at VCU, 10-year-old Kyla Roerty shared her thoughts about being a patient at the hospital. The new Children’s Pavilion will improve coordination of care for patients and their families.”As a parent, you need to have a place to turn. You want what’s best for your child, including a place where your child is comfortable,” said Gerry Roerty, Kyla’s dad. “It’s the idea of having one place where you know there is expertise for whatever your child’s need is. We are so fortunate in Richmond to have that.”To keep up on the latest news related to the Children’s Pavilion, visit go.vcu.edu/pavilion.
