support its claim as one of the best medical and health-service areas in the country.
Eighteen general and specialized hospitals
employ 2,000 physicians. Largest among
the area’s major healthcare institutions
is the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. The Medical Center
provides teaching, research, community

Trauma Center and sees more than 30,000
admissions per year, with 500,000 outpatients seen annually.
The Richmond Committee on the
Environment (COTE) has provided tools
to assist in the transition to a carbon neutral economy in the City of Richmond. The
Greater Richmond Convention Center is
one of the most versatile and well-equipped
meeting and exposition facilities in the mid-Atlantic and is dedicated to environmental
responsibility and the Virginia Green program. Green practices include recycling,
