VCU Health to break ground on $349 million outpatient facility
Officials from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and VCU Health will celebrate the start of construction on a $349 million outpatient facility during a groundbreaking event Friday, June 22.
The project is the largest capital construction project in the history of VCU Health.
The 9:30 a.m. groundbreaking will be held on the grounds of the former Virginia Treatment Center for Children on the MCV Campus. The 16-story, 603,000-square-foot building is expected to be a downtown hub for comprehensive outpatient care. A new 472,000-square-foot parking deck will add more than 1,000 parking spaces at the point of service on the downtown medical campus.
The estimated completion date of the initial design and construction phase is summer 2020. The new outpatient facility will consolidate most of VCU Massey Cancer Center’s outpatient care, on-site laboratory services, medical imaging, and women’s and rehabilitation services.
