Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters’ (CHKD) Medical Tower II is a 14-story pediatric psychiatric hospital and outpatient center under construction in Norfolk, Va. The region currently has a severe shortage of mental health treatment for children, and the project, designed by Array Architects, is planned to address this need and deliver a dignified and unique care experience.

The 366,700-square-foot facility, scheduled to open in January 2022, will feature 60 private inpatient beds, a partial hospitalization program, behavioral and specialty clinics, an indoor gym, music and art therapy, a multi-sensory room, family lounge areas, and an expansive rooftop recreation and horticultural area.
