Carilion plans to create center for children’s care at Tanglewood
Carilion Clinic announced Thursday that it will spend $30 million to convert part of Tanglewood Mall into a hub for its growing children’s services.
Carilion signed a lease to take over 150,000 square feet, which includes the spaces vacated by J.C. Penney and Miller-Motte Technical College. The mall’s owner and Roanoke County officials expect retailers, restaurants and other businesses will follow as Carilion Children’s brings an estimated 200 employees and 500 families a day to Tanglewood.
Carilion said bringing together its dozen children’s specialties will give the community a better sense of all that it offers children and adolescents, and it will also ease the burden for families.
“We’re incredibly excited about bringing all the specialty services that we can under one roof,” Nancy Agee, CEO and president, told a gathering on the lower level of Tanglewood in front of the former Penney’s entrance.
