Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU
It has been another great year at the Brook Road campus of Children’s Hospital of Richmond (CHoR) at VCU. The first and second year residents have been busy providing outstanding care to our patients and are a welcome addition to our practice.
The Brook Road Campus has a Transitional Care Unit for children who require continuous medical care and specialized services in a hospital setting. The pediatric dental residents have the unique experience of caring for the patients that reside in our long-term care facility. They experience providing care bedside, as well as in the clinic. Many of our Transitional Care patients have rare and complex medical conditions that provide an excellent learning experience for our residents. The residents also provide care in our clinic for well children and children with special needs.
We are very grateful for the kind and compassionate care the residents have provided to our patients. It has been a pleasure and honor to work with such dedicated and gifted professionals. We would like to thank the graduating second year residents for the kindness and exceptional care they have given our patients, as we look forward to a new class of outstanding residents in July.
