VCU Health and Children’s Hospital of Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth University have opened the 119,000-square-foot Virginia Treatment Center for Children (VTCC), in Richmond, Va. Dedicated to delivering family-centered psychiatric care for young patients, the freestanding, $65 million facility provides short-term crisis stabilization with round-the-clock care, and assistance to families in transitioning patients to continuing care after discharge.
The team at CannonDesign (Grand Island, N.Y.) conceived the VTCC as a “pavilion in the park,” designed to offer a welcoming, non-institutional feel for its clientele.
The center, which opened in April 2018, has 24 beds, consisting of two units with 12 private rooms each. (Typical inpatient stays are 5 to 7 days.) Patient amenities include a gymnasium, outdoor courtyard, and play equipment.
