Mayor Comments on Children's Hospital


Mayor Dwight C. Jones issued the following comment today regarding speculation about a free-standing children’s hospital in Richmond:

“Our region would be well-served by a free-standing, independently operated children’s hospital. The city of Richmond certainly would do everything we can to gain the opportunity to house such a facility within the city, where it can be easily accessible to all. This discussion stands on its own, and we anticipate that a decision about a children’s hospital location will be made independent of other issues, including the ballpark.”
