Carilion Children’s readies to serve patients at Tanglewood

Carilion Clinic plans to begin treating patients this fall at its new hub for children’s services at Tanglewood Mall.

Carilion Children’s Tanglewood Center, which occupies 150,000 square feet formerly home to a J.C. Penney, is expected to be fully operational by Oct. 4.

Dr. Donald Kees, interim chair of pediatrics, said Carilion has been expanding its pediatric specialty care for years, serving not just the local community, but a wide swath of Southwest Virginia. Many of those specialists were based at Carilion Roanoke Community Hospital, he said, but they lacked a dedicated space of their own.
