VCU Department of Radiology Updates and Headlines

The Image of Excellence Newsletter features important VCU Department of Radiology updates, headlines and faculty achievements.

Top Headline: Renovation and Expansion to Better Serve Communities

The VCU Department of Radiology has expanded services at the Neuroscience, Orthopaedic and Wellness Center (N.O.W. Center) with the addition of new CT and MRI scanners and DXA in June 2019. (Image: New MRI scanner at N.O.W. Center.) We are also in the midst of several renovation projects that include Main 3, Main 4 and ACC lower level.

The project on Main 3 of the VCU Medical Center will occur in 8 phases of renovation planned over the next 3 years with an estimated completion in late 2022. Some of the areas to be renovated include faculty and administration space, the Image Resource Center (IRC) and PICC team, patient registration and waiting area, as well as interventional radiology, fluoroscopy, ultrasound and CT areas. Main 4 space has been secured by the Department for inpatient ultrasound. We also secured space in the West Hospital to expand our 2nd floor footprint.

Master Plan: Expansions in Progress

The Adult Outpatient Facility (AOF) will be a 16-story, 603,040 sq. ft. outpatient facility with space for parking and a projected completion date of summer 2020. To date, this is the largest capital construction project in the history of VCU Health. The VCU Department of Radiology will have MR, CT, sonography (ultrasound), radiography, fluoroscopy and breast imaging on site.

Construction is well underway on the VCU Health Emergency Center at New Kent, a 17,000 sq. ft. facility that will provide round-the-clock emergency medical services. The center, which is slated for completion mid-2020, will offer advanced imaging including CT, digital X-ray and ultrasound.

Sheltering Arms Institute, located in the West End of Richmond, is a VCU Health and Sheltering Arms Hospital joint venture and will be a 212,000 sq. ft., 114-bed physical rehabilitation center. The facility, slated to open mid-2020, will include radiography, fluoroscopy, portable imaging and ultrasound. The rehabilitation center will focus on caring for individuals who have survived strokes, spinal cord injuries or brain injuries, as well as those in need of general rehabilitation or various neurological diseases and disorders.

The Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU construction is in progress. The new 500,000 sq. ft., 16-story facility will have 86 private inpatient rooms for acute and intensive care, parking and increased capacity for medical imaging. The facility is slated to open at the end of 2022.
