Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU’s new Children’s Tower will open on Sunday. CHoR and VCU Police have organized a special celebration – goodnight lights – to help patients settle in for their first night in their new hospital rooms.
“This is a monumental moment for our city and for children and families at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU,” VCU Police Chief John Venuti said. “Families will receive different colored flashlights with instructions to shine them out their hospital room windows for first responders to see. We’ll be outside with our vehicle lights on for them as well. It’s a way to say, ‘we’re cheering you on, and have a great first night in the new hospital.’”
The Children’s Tower is Richmond’s new home for pediatric inpatient, emergency and trauma care. Patients in the pediatric acute and intensive care units will move from the pediatric floor in VCU Medical Center Main Hospital to their new rooms in the Children’s Tower throughout the day on April 30.
“The Children’s Tower is truly a dream come true for our community, our families and our team members,” Jeniece Roane, vice president of operations for CHoR said. “The goodnight lights celebration is an opportunity to show our children that there’s a larger community rallying around them on opening night – and every night.”
Media are invited to join the celebration and shine their lights.
