Children's Hospital Foundation Heart Center

$28,000,000
paid and pledged from 2015 to 2025

In December 2014, Children’s Hospital Foundation pledged $28 million over 10 years to establish the Children’s Hospital Foundation Heart Center at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR). This commitment represents the largest gift ever made in support of a program at the hospital. The Children’s Hospital Foundation Heart Center will be the only one of its kind in Richmond. The first and most critical step in establishing the program has occurred: Dr. Thomas Yeh, an experienced pediatric congenital cardiac surgeon, has been hired to lead the program. Dr. Yeh comes from Tulane Medical Center and is most capable of realizing our shared vision of developing a Pediatric Heart Center at CHoR, the only full-service children’s hospital in our region.
