John Randolph Medical Center Dedicates New Wellness Pavilion
Range of behavioral health services available 24/7 in one location
Richmond, Va. (Jan. 30, 2014) — HCA Virginia’s John Randolph Medical Center today dedicated its new wellness pavilion, which will feature 24/7 care for individuals seeking behavioral health services such as inpatient hospitalization, outpatient programs, community resources and peer support groups in one location.
“The wellness pavilion is designed to be a large, secure and welcoming area allowing patients to bypass the traditional emergency room experience, unless a medical complication exists,” said Rakesh Shah M.D., medical director of behavioral health services, John Randolph Medical Center. “We are thrilled to partner with community organizations to offer these valuable resources for our patients.”
Shah also says that the new wellness pavilion will be equipped to handle more outpatient community programs for groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
Features include an assessment and referral department complete with consult rooms, a processing area and safe room; a group room which will support partial hospitalization programs as well as an intensive outpatient program; a family and visitor waiting area; a conference room for multidisciplinary team meetings and staff training; and offices for a physician and case manager.
“The Wellness Pavilion will provide an entry point for individuals to engage with others in the identification, prevention and development of building skills that can provide growth,” said Cindy Meyer, division vice president for behavioral health, HCA Virginia Health System. “The Pavilion was designed to also engage our community partners to provide support through expanded partnerships.”
The new wellness pavilion will begin offering services in February. Inpatient services will relocate to the pavilion and expand from 24 to 40 beds later in the year.
For more than 100 years, HCA Virginia has been providing a full range of acute inpatient behavioral health services for seniors, adults, adolescents and children through the Tucker Pavilion at Chippenham Hospital and the behavioral health program at John Randolph Medical Center.
