Carilion Clinic Breaks Ground for Outpatient Facility

video
Members of Carilion Clinic's leadership team and Roanoke City Manager Darlene Burcham ceremonially broke ground for the Clinic's new, 200,000 square foot outpatient facility in Roanoke. The building will serve a a cornerstone of sorts for the Riverside development, which will include an existing office building, the outpatient facility, a 1500 space parking garage and the college of medicine/research institute being jointly developed by Carilion Clinic and Virginia Tech.

It was a bit of a blustery morning, so the event began in the adjacent building, but the skies cleared and the wind died down just in time to break out the golden shovels and break ground on the site itself.

Following the groundbreaking, participates and guests warmed up with a cup of coffee in the nearby Riverside Center building, where they were able to catch a panoramic view of the construction site, and see renderings of the finished project.
