New Freestanding ER Coming to Loudoun Route 50 Corridor
â€œLoudoun County officials have been clear in saying that the Route 50 corridor lacks adequate emergency care facilities,â€ said Tim McManus, President of HCA Virginiaâ€™s Northern Virginia Market and CEO of Reston Hospital Center.Â â€œBy building StoneSpring Emergency Center, weâ€™re responding to that identified need, improving access to care for residents, and accelerating the development of our Route 50 medical campus.â€
StoneSpring Emergency Center will be built on HCA Virginiaâ€™s StoneSpring Medical Campus, a 50-acre site located at the intersection of Gum Spring Road and Route 50.Â Groundbreaking is expected for summer 2012, and the $10 million facility is expected to open mid-year 2013.Â On that same site, HCA Virginia has been awarded a Certificate of Public Need to build 164-bed StoneSpring Medical Center.Â The medical center is scheduled to open December 2015, at which time the emergency center will become part of the hospital itself.
StoneSpring Emergency Center will have 12 bays and house a CT scanner and other technology needed to diagnose and treat patients with moderate to serious injuries and illnesses. Like a hospital emergency room, the 9,600-square-foot facility will be open 24 hours a day, staffed by physicians, nurses and other caregivers with specialty training in emergency care.Â It will accommodate ambulance traffic as well as walk-in patients.
Reston Hospital Center, which is HCA Virginiaâ€™s flagship facility in Northern Virginia, is currently undergoing a $65 million expansion that includes the addition of four operating rooms (bringing the total to 13) as well as the construction of a new LEED-certified medical office building (MOB) with environmentally friendly design features. The Reston project will be completed in stages over the next two to three years.
