HCA Virginia Health System starts construction on new emergency center in Loudoun County
Construction has begun on StoneSpring Emergency Center, a $10 million emergency center that’s part of HCA Virginia Health System’s expansion in Northern Virginia.
The 9,600-square-foot center is expected to open this fall. It will have 12 private rooms, a full-service laboratory, CT scanner and other technology needed to diagnose and treat patients with moderate to serious injuries and illnesses.
“StoneSpring Emergency Center will provide vital medical services to residents along the Route 50 corridor,” John Deardorff, president and CEO of HCA Virginia Health System’s Reston Hospital Center, said in a statement. “We’re delighted to be one step closer to making this facility a reality for Loudoun County.”
The center will be operated as a department of Reston Hospital Center. It will be open 24 hours a day. Staffed by physicians, nurses and other caregivers with specialty training in emergency care, it will accommodate ambulance traffic as well as walk-in patients.
The center is going up on HCA Virginia’s StoneSpring Medical Campus, a 50-acre site located at the intersection of Gum Spring Road and Route 50. On that site, HCA Virginia has been awarded a Certificate of Public Need to build StoneSpring Medical Center. It’s scheduled to open in December 2015, at which time the emergency center will be integrated into the hospital structure.
HCA Virginia Health System’s other Northern Virginia expansion plans include a $25 million, 150,000-square-foot medical office building at Reston Hospital Center. Work on that project got underway in September. The facility will house hospital services as well as physician offices and is scheduled to open this fall as well.
Statewide, HCA Virginia Health System operates 13 hospitals and more than 30 outpatient centers and is affiliated with 3,000 physicians. It is Virginia’s fifth-largest private employer.
