Located within the heart of the city, Chesapeake Regional Healthcare (CRH) continues to grow and expand avenues for providing healthcare outside the walls of the Chesapeake Regional Medical Center that was established in 1976 as an independent, community-based hospital. The hospital is also conveniently located just 15 miles above the state border with North Carolina, and central to the five cities of South Hampton Roads in Virginia, accessible by main freeways and roads. Chesapeake Regional consists of 310 licensed and staffed beds, over 600 physicians, and a full staff of over 2,300 persons. The hospital is a key provider for residents not only in Chesapeake, but throughout eleven counties of northeastern North Carolina (more than 13% of total patients), and surrounding cities in South Hampton Roads
