The newest CHKD Children’s Medical Group pediatric practice, Nansemond Pediatrics, held an open house Saturday for children to see their doctor’s new office.

Dianne Chirico, Richard Curry, Pete Grosso and Kathryn McCormick are the four doctors teaming up with Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters. The new practice is located at 1005 Commercial Lane, Suite 220, near Sentara Obici Hospital, where the doctors are on staff.

The new 7,000-square-feet office features 17 exam rooms and ample workspace for nurses and administration, Curry said. The office will have the most up-to-date equipment, and all four doctors are certified in pediatrics.
