CHKD Mental Health Hospital Opens New Facility in 2022

CHKD is expanding its mission to encompass mental health with the addition of a new mental health hospital and outpatient treatment center. The 14-story tower on the Norfolk campus, which celebrated its topping off August 11th, will offer unique features such as indoor and outdoor recreation areas, art and music zones, and education and training rooms as well as room to grow. 

“CHKD appealed to me as a mid-size program at a free-standing children's hospital with few fellows. I love the support and mentorship that we receive as residents from faculty, staff and each other, as well as having a wonderful group of people to work with every day.”

A supportive environment

Work-life balance is important during your residency, and we are committed to supporting our residents throughout their time at EVMS. Through EVMS' Wellness Works program, our residents and fellows receive the same wellness resources as our faculty and staff.

In addition, our Resident Wellness program for residents and fellows gives you access to support groups, after-hours counseling services, running clubs, leadership coaching and more.

Promoting diversity and inclusion

Our training program diligently recruits diverse residents and esteems the unique value everyone adds to our residency family, our healthcare system and our community.

We believe medical training includes learning and teaching how to stand firm in opposing hatred and violence, thus empowering us to proudly serve Hampton Roads' diverse population, which includes minorities, economically disenfranchised individuals, transgender youth, immigrants and global refugees.
