The Countdown Is On to the Opening of Carilion Children's - Tanglewood Center

It's almost time! Over the next few weeks, individual Carilion Children’s practices are making the move into the new Carilion Children’s - Tanglewood Center. Carilion Clinic adult and pediatric ENT/Audiology and Dentistry will move adjacent spaces in Tanglewood as well. The facility will be fully operational for all Carilion Children’s patients starting Oct. 4.

“For several years, Carilion Children’s has expanded specialized pediatric services for our community, and we’re excited to finally have a new home for our specialties all under one roof,” said Dr. Donald Kees, interim chair of Pediatrics for Carilion. “This facility will be a destination for expert pediatric care for families in our region and beyond.”

The range of practices moving into 150,000-square-foot space include:

  • General Pediatrics
  • Adolescent Medicine
  • Pediatric Behavioral Health
  • Pediatric Cardiology
  • Pediatric Child Development
  • Pediatric and Adult Dentistry
  • Pediatric Endocrinology
  • Pediatric and Adult ENT
  • Pediatric Gastroenterology
  • Pediatric Genetics
  • Pediatric Neurology
  • Pediatric Neurosurgery (satellite location)
  • Pediatric Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (satellite location)
  • Pediatric Pulmonology
  • Pediatric Surgery
  • Pediatric Therapies

Services will include:

  • Certified Child Life Specialists
  • Full-service lab
  • Imaging services

The physical space – which formerly housed a JC Penney – also incorporates several green initiatives including low flow plumbing fixtures, LED motion activated lighting, and expanded recycling initiatives.

“There is a real-time transformation taking place at Tanglewood,” said Jill Loope, director of Roanoke County Department of Economic Development. “Carilion’s decision to revitalize vacant space and create a pediatric hub has contributed to a flurry of investment and excitement around Tanglewood and the larger Roanoke County commercial corridor. We look forward to welcoming Carilion providers and patients to the area this October.”

As part of Tanglewood Mall, the Carilion Children’s - Tanglewood Center provides easy access and plenty of parking, making it easier for families who have multiple appointments. Families will also have access to additional lab and imaging services on-site, allowing for a convenient, one-stop-shop experience with area stores, entertainment, and restaurants right next door.

Carilion general pediatrics patients will also be able to schedule evening (5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday) and weekend appointments (8 a.m. to noon on both Saturday and Sunday) at the Tanglewood Center, which is an expanded service offering.

“This facility will not only act as a resource for families in our region, but also as a clinical hub bringing individuals to our area for the first time,” said John Hull, executive director of the Roanoke Regional Partnership. “This helps set our region apart, both as a resource for expert medical services and as a place to work, attracting talent and business to the area.”
