New hospital to be built in Loudoun
HCA Virginia’s longtime plans to build a new Loudoun County hospital were approved Monday evening by the county's Board of Supervisors, the Washington Business Journal reports.
HCA’s StoneSpring Medical Center project was announced last April. The board was not expected to make a decision on the project until May 18, but members suspended the rules and passed the plan Monday.
The news comes more than a year after the board denied HCA’s plan to build Broadlands Regional Medical Center in the county. Shortly after, Richmond-based HCA Virginia, a unit of Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Inc., decided to pursue the Route 50 location as its next option.
HCA Virginia bought the 50-acre site, located at the intersection of Gum Spring Road and Route 50, in late 2006. In September, Virginia state health officials approved a request from HCA Virginia to transfer its proposed Loudoun County hospital from Broadlands to Route 50.
The planned hospital will contain more than 380,000-square-feet — slightly smaller in size than the 392,000-square-foot one in Broadlands. The $195 million, 164-bed facility could open in late 2015. .
