Bon Secours has opened a new freestanding emergency center in Short Pump. Known as Short Pump Medical Plaza, the new medical center is located in Broad Hill Centre near Wegman’s and opened its doors on Monday, September 17th to patients experiencing life-threatening emergencies, major medical concerns and, minor injuries alike.

The facility serves as an extension of Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital and is staffed with caring medical personnel who provide the same services and level of care found in a traditional hospital. It is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week with board-certified emergency room physicians and nurses. Additionally, ambulances can immediately transport patients needing an inpatient hospital stay, bypassing the hospital ER altogether.

“We are committed to expanding access to emergency services to meet the needs of our rapidly growing community,” said Francine Barr, CEO of Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital. “…[The facility] will provide much needed, easy access to quality, compassionate emergency care for both walk-in patients and emergency medical services partners.”

The new, two-story, 50,000 square foot facility includes separate public and ambulance entrances, a 12-bed emergency department, a primary care practice, medical imaging center featuring CT, MRI, ultrasound, X-ray, and 3D mammography technology, and pediatric capabilities.

The emergency center can treat life-threatening conditions (such as heart attacks, stroke, and respiratory issues), major and minor injuries (from burns and fractures to cuts and sprains), overdoses, and more.

Bon Secours Short Pump Medical Plaza is located at 12320 West Broad Street and is the second freestanding emergency center the health system operates in the Richmond area.

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Tom Leonard’s Farmer’s Market, which has operated in western Henrico County since 2004, is getting bigger.

The 15,000-square-foot market will nearly double in size when the store expansion project is completed later this year, owner Tom Leonard said.

Construction should begin late in the spring.

The expansion will take over the tented area to the left of the store – where pumpkins and Christmas trees are typically sold.

The added space will enable the market, off Tom Leonard Drive, to expand and move its bakery and deli departments into the new space. The bakery will be able to make fresh-boiled bagels – “the way they do them in New York,” Leonard said.
