Saving Lives at Richmond Raceway
VCU Health provides medical care at some of Richmond’s largest sporting events including NASCAR, the Richmond Marathon and the PGA Tour. During the spring NASCAR weekend, April 11-13, at Richmond Raceway, VCU Health provided 38 hours of medical coverage with 21 nurses and four physicians.
We treated 57 individuals and arranged transport to a hospital or other care facility for four individuals over the course of the event. The entire team performed with incredible expertise, care and organizational pride.
The VCU Health Emergency Preparedness and Event Management trailer is used to haul equipment and supplies to and from each event.
