ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. – More pediatric care options are coming to Roanoke County in early October.
10 News got an inside look at Carilion Children’s new children’s center opening in Tanglewood Mall.
Individual practices are beginning to move into the nearly 80,000-square-foot space ahead of the grand opening on October 6.
The facility is designed to provide several green initiatives while serving as a pediatric center for families.
“We’ve had an identity crisis here for a long time, people would say, ‘Where are Carilion Children?’ Now it’s clearly visible what the other will offer with the consolidated space, there will be a lot more collaboration,” said Dr. Donald Kees, interim chair of pediatrics at Carilion Clinic.
This project is also part of the Tanglewood Mall overhaul, which includes several new restaurants such as Chili’s, Blaze Pizza and Panda Express.
