About VCU Health System

For 175 years, VCU Health System (VCUHS) has made everlasting impressions on the health of those we care for, educate and employ. And through world-class research, we are touching multitudes more who we will never know. Achievements, accolades, breakthroughs and discoveries aside, making an impression often only requires a smile, a pat on the back, a comforting word, a shoulder to lean on or even a borrowed ear. Each year, hundreds of thousands of Richmonders, Virginians and beyond seek our help. And we give it, one patient, one kind word, one hand held at a time.

VCUHS proudly employs nearly 9,000 dedicated professionals. We comprise a 600-strong physician practice, numerous outpatient clinics and our hospital, which has 865 licensed beds. We are a regional referral center for the state and the region’s only Level I Trauma Center. VCUHS offers nearly 200 specialty areas, many of national and international acclaim. VCUHS also includes Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR), the region’s only full service children’s hospital.

In addition to multidisciplinary centers for cancer, cardiology, neurosurgery and transplantation, we offer virtually every form of contemporary medical care. 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.
