And through world-class research, we are touching multitudes more who we will never know.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of Richmonders, Virginians and beyond seek our help. And we give it, one patient, one kind word, one hand held at a time.
VCUHS proudly employs nearly 9,000 dedicated professionals. We comprise a 600-strong physician practice, numerous outpatient clinics and our hospital, which has 865 licensed beds.
