How expansion, renovation will change Henrico Doctors’ Hospital women’s center
HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — A local hospital is preparing to kick off a big two-year project to upgrade a portion of its facility. Henrico Doctors’ Hospital, at 1602 Skipwith Road, will start expanding and renovating its women’s center this summer. With a 22-month construction period, the work should be finished around the spring of 2017. The project will expand the size of the 120,000-square-foot building by 18,000 square feet. Hospital COO David Donaldson said it is too early to share the total cost of the work but that it will be a multimillion-dollar undertaking.
“We are the largest OB-GYN hospital in Central Virginia,” Donaldson said, citing total births per year. “We really differentiate our program by quality and the patient outcomes that we have, and we’re really doing these aesthetical upgrades to keep up with the volume of growth and to help with healing.”
Donaldson said the organization has been working on securing funding and support for the work over the last two years.
