Sheltering Arms Institute is situated on 46 acres in the West Creek Medical Park off Broad Street Road, just east of the state Route 288 interchange in Goochland County. The state-of-the-science physical rehabilitation facility is the only hospital in central Virginia constructed specifically for physical rehabilitation with 212,063 total square feet, all private patient rooms, five specialty units, a 9,251 square foot main therapy gym and three satellite gyms, research space, state-of-the-art patient care technology and rehabilitation equipment, and more.

The new hospital combines the strengths of both organizations to provide exceptional care for individuals who have survived strokes, spinal cord injuries or brain injuries, as well as those in need of general rehabilitation for various illnesses and injuries.

From June 13-28, Sheltering Arms and VCU Health are relocating existing beds from both organizations’ three current hospitals – Sheltering Arms Hanover (40 beds), Sheltering Arms South (28 beds), and VCU Health (46 beds). Moving patients in phases allows for the most effective accreditation and regulatory reviews, which are standard requirements at a new hospital.

Sheltering Arms Institute is on schedule to open its doors on Friday, June 12, 2020.
