Bon Secours continues to build out its local footprint of urgent care centers, this time with an eye on South Richmond.

The health system has plans for a clinic in the Shops at Stratford Hills, in a yet-to-be-built new outparcel at the shopping center, according to a leasing flyer for the development.

The clinic would be situated at the corner of Forest Hill Avenue and Cherokee Road, where it’ll share the future building with a planned Chipotle. The shopping center is anchored by Publix and Target stores.

Bon Secours spokeswoman Jenna Green confirmed on Wednesday the plans for the Stratford Hills location, which hasn’t been formally announced.  She said the clinic is expected to open next year but declined to comment further on the new location.

Earlier this year, Bon Secours initiated plans for a five-unit expansion of its urgent care arm in the Richmond market. The health system kicked off the project with an outpost at 14163 Midlothian Turnpike in June, and on Wednesday opened a Henrico clinic at 11201 Nuckols Road.

The other three locations, planned in the Regency, East End and Swift Creek areas, are slated to open “in the coming months,” according to a Bon Secours news release. Before this year’s expansion of urgent care centers, Bon Secours was already operating one at 9851 Brook Road in Glen Allen.

Additional locations, among them the clinic at Stratford Hills, are planned for next year.

The Nuckols Road center is located in a former SunTrust bank branch that was sold in August 2022 by Truist Bank, the entity formed by the 2019 merger of SunTrust and BB&T. The owner of the roughly 4,000-square-foot building is an entity tied to Hamilton Asset Advisors in Yardley, Pennsylvania.

The $2 million Nuckols Road clinic has eight treatment rooms in addition to a lab area and X-ray room, Green said.

The expansion of local urgent care facilities by Bon Secours comes after competitor HCA acquired BetterMed Urgent Care last year and rebranded the locations to CareNow Urgent Care.

Urgent care facilities are intended to address minor injuries and illnesses.

Bon Secours and HCA have dueling proposals to establish a new, free-standing emergency center in Hanover County, subject to approval by the state health department.

Bon Secours Richmond is the local arm of Bon Secours Mercy Health, which is one of the 20 largest health systems in the county. Its Richmond metro hospitals are St. Mary’s Hospital, Memorial Regional Medical Center, Richmond Community Hospital, St. Francis Medical Center and Southside Medical Center. The system also operates free-standing emergency rooms and other facilities in the region.

Given the bus service and diversity of incomes in Stratford Hills and further This should be a profitable center that provides adequate health services. I wonder if they’ll be able to take advantage of the federal drug loophole and receive adequate discounts at this location?

The area is too middle class for that.

While district 4 would like to have an urgent care, this is exactly the type of project district 8 is looking for to fill the casino void. 4 has enough density and development. District 8 could use Preston Lloyd’s Chipotle anchored apartment/condos, and urgent care more than district 4 can.

I get everyone wants street frontage but the center of the center (and the smaller anchor space that was OfficeMax) has a LOT of vacancy. Why approve more retail space when your center has such a high vacancy rate?

Office Max was filled by Goodwill. Maybe not the ideal tenants, but the center is decently filled now. I am not disappointed to see that corner be developed to get rid of the old tattoo shop that looks horrible. My preference would be for that old building to be filled, but it has been vacant for about a decade. Time to move on.

I forgot they opened, but the center still has almost 12,000 ft.² of empty space in its center. An entire store group from the old Five below/PopShelf to the store that back to Target have been basically vacant for decade or more.

It’s a lotta empty space and Thalhimer has advertisement that space for a while.

It’s vacant because it’s been left that way by the self-same folks that are bringing the Chipotle. People aren’t falling for the old, “it’ll be better than the eyesore that’s was there” argument anymore. Good Will moved in and is competing w nearby local thrift stores. District 4 doesn’t need this density and doesn’t want it.
