CHKD In-Patient Tower

Recommended Posts


Folks, I was mistaken. This is a completely separate building from the other CHKD Tower. Working to get some more info on the location.

It looks like the existing office tower in the background of the rendering for the new tower. IMG_0357.thumb.PNG.8618b36132130d9c0705c70fa2bc7c8d.PNG

Ah, so perhaps a remodel of the existing tower then. The shorter brown building connected at the right of that tower does not currently exist.

This may need some more ironing out but as far as I was tracking the new tower pictured in 23320's post is the mental health facility.

This brown building does not exist, the tower that it’s attached to does, but not in it’s current form. This is the new “in-patient” facility. This is separate and apart from the medical office tower that is to the left and out of frame in this image. That tower is in the rendering that 23320 posted. It fronts Brambleton and is directly across from FNP.

I think the Pilot is mistaken in conflating these 2 projects. They seem to be separate facilities for separate uses. That, or the city is mistaken in their facility descriptions. I’m leaning more towards the pilot being wrong.

I think you're right somebody is putting incorrect information out not on purpose I'm sure. This area just isn't use to so much going on at once :D

CHKD Receives State Approval for Expansion of Mental Health Program

HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters has received notification from Virginia Commissioner of Health, Dr. M. Norman Oliver, that the state has approved the hospital’s certificate of public need application for a new pediatric mental health facility to help meet the critical shortage of services in our region.

This new facility, to be constructed just off Brambleton Avenue in Norfolk on the medical campus shared by CHKD, EVMS, and Sentara Norfolk General, will include 48 inpatient mental health beds exclusively for young patients, along with mental health day treatment programs and other services....

Now that state approval has been granted, CHKD will move forward on the planning, funding, and construction of these new facilities. It will take approximately two years to open the 12 beds in the current hospital and four years for the new building to be completed.

Once they start developing the Fort Norfolk side, that area is going to look really nice, esp. from downtown.
