Our 292-bed hospital offers a full range of healthcare services, with specialties in cancer care-through the Thomas Johns Cancer Hospital-as well as inpatient rehabilitation (with all private rooms) and neuroscience, including our first-in-Richmond Gamma Knife Center.

Although we know we provide our patients with the best medical care, it's nice to be recognized by external parties for the compassionate and top-quality care our medical teams provide.

  • Johnston-Willis is the first hospital in the US to receive The Joint Commission Gold Seal Certificate of Distinction for Brain Tumor care.
  • We are the first non-academic hospital in Virginia to receive the Comprehensive Stroke Certification by DNV-GL Healthcare, the highest level of competence possible for stroke care.
