Virtual Tour of new CHKD Mental Health Hospital

Hope for Our Children

In September of 2019, Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters broke ground on a new $224 million pediatric mental health hospital and outpatient center that will serve as the centerpiece of a comprehensive plan to address our children's mental health needs. The new facility will stand out among the nation's top pediatric mental health hospitals for its thoughtful patient and family-centered design, evidence-based treatments, academic training program, and clinical research to guide innovation.

This vision has been developed over several years to answer the growing need for pediatric mental health care in coastal Virginia. You can be part of the solution for our children.  CHKD is currently hiring RNs, MDs, DOs and a variety of other clinical providers to work in this beautiful new building.

CHKD's 14-story facility will transform mental health care for young people in our region and beyond. From the light-filled atrium to the thoughtful design of our private patient rooms, the new building will provide a welcoming atmosphere and treatment environment for preschool through high school-aged children.

Highlights of CHKD's new mental health hospital and outpatient center illustrate our commitment to quality.
