An East End medical building has a new look – and a new purpose.
Bon Secours recently renovated the 6,800-square-foot first floor of its medical office building at Richmond Community Hospital, adding an outpatient pharmacy, an outpatient infusion center and a heart failure clinic.
Dr. Yvette Johnson-Threat, RCH’s chief medical officer, said the organization chose the new offerings based on what it thought would be the biggest benefit to East End residents.
“The community lacked certain services. There are a lot of transportation issues,” she said. “We want to be able to provide services the community needs, in their community.” The floor previously housed DaVita Dialysis, which moved to North 25th Street, and the East End Pharmacy, which closed when its longtime owner retired. Bon Secours declined to say how much the renovations cost but said funding for the project came from the health system’s operating budget and its foundation. Emerald Construction was the general contractor.
