VCU Health representatives will join state and local leaders in New Kent County on Monday, June 17, to break ground on a $16 million emergency center.

The 17,000-square-foot VCU Health Emergency Center at New Kent will offer round-the-clock emergency medicine physicians, emergency-trained registered nurses, laboratory services and integrated technology. The center will also provide advanced imaging including CT scans, digital X-rays and ultrasounds. It will feature 12 treatment rooms and a helipad.

The groundbreaking ceremony will take place at 2495 Pocahontas Trail in Quinton beginning at 10 a.m. Media parking is available.

The center, located near Exit 205 of Interstate 64, will open in the spring of 2020. The site and facility plans allow for future medical office expansion.
