Carilion Children’s Tanglewood Center – located where JC Penney used to be – expects building renovations to be complete by August, with an official opening in October. It will be home to Carilion Children’s outpatient services.  Carilion Children’s Tanglewood will feature 120 exam and consulting rooms, 14 pediatric specialties on site – and 700 parking spaces. At a groundbreaking in September 2019 Carilion President and CEO Nancy Agee said this model had worked before on Franklin Road:

NEWS RELEASE: Extensive renovations are underway, both inside and outside Tanglewood Mall in Roanoke County. Officially known as the Carilion Children’s Tanglewood Center, the building is planned to be completed in August 2021, with an official opening in early October.

“We cannot wait to open our doors this fall,” said Dr. Donald Kees, interim chair of Pediatrics for Carilion. “This facility signals a shift in access to care, offering a central access point for pediatric specialty services in our region.”

The building will be home to Carilion Children’s outpatient specialty practices. It is designed to make it easier for patients and their families, many of whom see more than one specialist, to access expert care. Acting as a one-stop shop, the Carilion Children’s Tanglewood Center will bring world-class pediatric services under one roof.

  • Pediatric physical, occupational, and speech therapies
  • Child Life Specialists
  • Imaging and laboratory services
  • Telemedicine
  • 120 exam rooms and multiple consult rooms

Carilion’s Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) practice, both adult and children, will have an adjacent location accessible from inside Tanglewood Mall.

“In all this excitement, the goal remains the same,” said Dr. Kees. “We’re here to provide specialized care, close to home, for the children in our region.”
