The COVID-19 pandemic caused a temporary restriction of all visitation, but as a health care organization, we understand the important role that family and friends play in healing and recovery.  As of June 11, 2020, VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital will allow restricted visitation, each day from noon until 6:00 PM.  Please note that visitation at the Hundley Center is still suspended at this time.
