Capital Campaign

Building upon our legacy.

Chesapeake Regional Healthcare is Building Upon Our Legacy with a $135 million expansion project to enhance how we serve our community. As we continue to respond to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are preparing to provide even greater service in the future.
Our hospital exists today because of the vision and support of the community we serve. Originally named Chesapeake General, the hospital was formed after the grassroots efforts of local citizens over 45 years ago who fought to establish a hospital in their own community. Our original benefactors sought the Commonwealth’s approval, secured a federal construction grant and raised an additional $1.2 million (the equivalent of nearly $8 million in today’s dollars) to enable construction of our hospital.

Evolving to Benefit Patients

These efforts created an exceptional sense of community pride and ownership in our hospital. As we work to expand and improve how we serve our community, we hope to reignite that sense of pride. Our transformation to serve the community of tomorrow is as robust today as it was in 1966 when the campaign to open the hospital began. While our mission to improve the health and well-being of the communities served remains the same as when the hospital opened in 1976, the health care landscape is rapidly evolving. Globally, new technologies and interventions have altered how health care can be provided. Locally, as our region continues to grow, we are working every day to bring new high-tech capabilities, state-of-the-art facilities, breakthrough clinical protocols, leading-edge electronic information systems and powerful wellness initiatives to make each patient’s care faster, safer and more effective. This results in better patient outcomes, higher satisfaction, more holistic treatment and fewer complications.


  • Chesapeake Regional’s beneficial economic impact to the region exceeds $500 million.
  • For every dollar in revenue, Chesapeake Regional realizes mere pennies in profit. ($100 in revenue provides just $3 to put toward improvements and growth).
  • Your philanthropic gift provides an incredible impact to help Chesapeake Regional achieve its goals. For example, a gift of $100,000 is equivalent to $3.3 million of revenue.
  • Your financial support is truly transformational and has an immediate impact on the health and welfare of this community.

Plans to Renovate the BirthPlace

In 2018, Chesapeake Regional delivered the most babies in this service area and we continue to be a large contributor to this day. To accommodate the growing demand for obstetrical care, the Mother Baby unit is being renovated and expanded to include larger postpartum rooms with more amenities.

Larger rooms with refrigerators, comfortable sleeping for a guest and other conveniences will complement the features our OB patients already enjoy today, including alternative birthing options 24/7 lactation services and access to high-quality breast pumps and a wide variety of accessories and hard-to-find items new moms need.

Leading Edge Technology in the Critical Care Tower

The new Critical Care Tower is strategically designed to follow a patient’s progression from critical care to a step-down unit and will include a telemetry stroke unit. It will enable implementation of advanced technologies and interventions for a variety of acute medical conditions and is designed to support families, offering access to overnight room accommodations, charging stations for communication devices, family conference space and access to food and beverages. Our ability to pivot whenever the unexpected need arises will be enhanced by the latest technology and state-of-the-art features built into the Critical Care Tower.
