Many of the physicians who practice here are leaders in their respective fields. It's this commitment to leadership that continues to drive our nursing and medical teams to provide you and your family with the care and compassion you deserve.

In addition to delivering superior healthcare services, we also want to make you as comfortable as we can while you’re here. We encourage you to communicate freely and frequently with our nursing and support staff, individuals who stand ready and available to answer any questions you may have about your care. You’ll feel confident knowing you’ve chosen the right facility for your healthcare needs.

Our story

Johnston-Willis Hospital has been delivering high-quality healthcare to the Greater Richmond area for more than a century. Founded in 1909, we offer a full range of healthcare services, with specialties in cancer care and neurological care at our first-in-Richmond Neuroscience and Gamma Knife Center. Combined with our sister facility, Chippenham Hospital, for supplementary care when needed, we continue to make Central Virginia proud as a healthcare partner you can rely on.

We are committed to caring for you with compassion, competence and professionalism, while continually doing our best to take care of you and your family. Our goal is to guide you on your road to recovery, while exceeding your expectations. When a healthcare issue emerges, rest easier knowing you’ve got one of the best hospitals in the area in your corner.
