Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters
In October 2016, site clearing began at 11770 Rock Landing for a new pediatrics office facility, the latest component of Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters’ (CHKD) continuing expansion in Newport News. The 2.94-acre parcel for the facility was purchased from the Authority in July 2016, and will help CHKD meet sought-after, non-emergency medical resources for families in Newport News and the greater Peninsula.
The new, 15,000-square-foot building will be home to CHKD Medical Group’s Newport News Pediatrics, and is expected to be open for appointments in mid-summer 2017. The practice that will occupy the new building is relocating from CHKD’s Health and Surgery Center at Oyster Point, just across the street, a move that will free up space at the Health and Surgery Center so CHKD can increase access to its unique and highly specialized services to more Peninsula children and families, especially for active youth suffering from athletic injuries.
Also in October, CHKD opened the Peninsula’s first urgent care center just for kids in nearby Marketplace at Tech Center. Located at 680 Oyster Point Road in Newport News, CHKD Urgent Care center is open Monday through Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., with plans to add weekend hours in early 2017. “Urgent care” includes treatment for common illnesses and injuries of childhood including colds, flu, sinus and ear infections, asthma, gastrointestinal issues, sports and orthopedic injuries and suturing for cuts that need stitches. X-ray and lab capabilities are also on-site.Visit website
