Named for Richmond philanthropists and early EVMS supporters Frances and Sydney Lewis, this is Eastern Virginia’s primary education and research facility. Dedicated in 1978, the building underwent extensive upgrades in 2011. A new café, bookstore and expanded seating were part of the renovation, along with the addition of an “active lounge,” complete with game tables and grassy area just outside the building.
Edward E. Brickell Medical Sciences Library
The Brickell Medical Sciences Library is a state-of-the-art facility with an advanced information infrastructure allowing access to a host of digital resources. Opened in 2000, the library houses the original Moorman Memorial Library collection, a computer lab, a computer classroom, historical collections, archives, and group and individual study seating.

The center's fully digital environment allows for live observation of any of the 17 exam rooms from any on-campus computer.

EVMS does not own a teaching hospital. Instead, EVMS works in partnership with hospitals, physicians, and clinics throughout the region, providing students and residents with a broad base of clinical experience. For the region as a whole, these educational partnerships spread the benefits of an academic medical center throughout the region, improving the quality of life and the quality of health care for the entire community.
