January 8, 2013–Construction has officially begun on StoneSpring Emergency Center, with an opening date planned for fall 2013.
“StoneSpring Emergency Center will provide vital medical services to residents along the Route 50 corridor,” said John Deardorff, president and CEO of HCA Virginia Health System’s Reston Hospital Center. “We’re delighted to be one step closer to making this facility a reality for Loudoun County.”
StoneSpring Emergency Center will have 12 private rooms, a full-service laboratory, a CT scanner and other technology needed to diagnose and treat patients with moderate to serious injuries and illnesses. It will be operated as a department of Reston Hospital Center. Like a hospital emergency room, the $10 million, 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. It will accommodate ambulance traffic as well as walk-in patients.
The center will be built on HCA Virginia’s StoneSpring Medical Campus, a 50-acre site located at the intersection of Gum Spring Road and Route 50. On that same site, HCA Virginia has been awarded a Certificate of Public Need to build StoneSpring Medical Center. The medical center is scheduled to open 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. Groundbreaking for the project occurred on September 17. The facility will house hospital services as well as physician offices and is scheduled to open in the fall of 2013.
