Located near the intersection of Route 288 and Tuckahoe Creek Parkway East, just minutes from Short Pump, Broad Street and Patterson Avenue, the 10,000-square-foot ER will be staffed 24/7 by physicians and clinical staff with special training in pediatric and adult emergency medicine. Services at the facility include an on-site, full-service lab with point-of-care testing, a full range of imaging (x-ray, CT and ultrasound), and expedited transfers for patients who need inpatient or specialty care at Henrico, Parham or Retreat Doctors’ Hospitals.
