Virginia Eye Institute will break ground on its 2.1 acre outparcel at its Towne Center West property, located in Short Pump (Glen Allen), Virginia, on Wednesday, May 18th from 12-1:30pm. Doctors and administration from Virginia Eye Institute, HCA, and representatives of Henrico County will be in attendance.
The Ground Breaking will kick-off the construction of the 16,000-square-foot comprehensive eye-care center to be built on the site. The project has an estimated completion date of January 2012. This state of the art eye care center will include services for general ophthalmology, pediatric ophthalmology, ocularplastics, optometry, and a full-service optical shop serving Richmond and surrounding communities.
Virginia Eye Institute’s CEO Chris Carney believes that the Towne Center West location will succeed in bringing quality comprehensive ophthalmic care to Western Henrico: “Our Towne Center West office is an important step in VEI’s goal to be accessible to those who want to use our array of ophthalmic services across Virginia.” Virginia Eye Institute will be hiring additional doctors and staffing for the site. The site will also offer a primary care physician practice, part of HCA’s Virginia Health System. The building architect is Price Studios, an architecture design firm based in Richmond, VA. Taylor and Parrish, Inc, a commercial construction company based in Richmond, VA, is the general contractor.
