Richmond, Va. (June 25, 2014) – HCA Virginia’s John Randolph Medical Center held a ribbon cutting ceremony today to celebrate the opening of its new outpatient entrance.
According to Suzanne Jackson, chief executive officer of John Randolph Medical Center, the new entrance is part of the hospital’s commitment to the community and its ongoing efforts to create a welcoming environment while improving accessibility for patients.
"John Randolph has a long history of community involvement and high quality care," said Jackson. "We are proud to be a partner within the TriCities region including the city of Hopewell."
Attendees during the event included local and state officials, local business representatives, individuals from the hospital administrative team, JRMC employees, members of its board and George Elder, a member of the founding family.
The ceremony comes on the heels of the dedication of John Randolph’s new Wellness Pavilion, which began offering 24/7 services in February for individuals seeking behavioral health care such as inpatient hospitalization, outpatient programs, community resources and peer support groups in one location.
"The community has so much to be proud of," said Jackson. "The best healthcare is not found in Richmond – it’s found right here in your backyard."
