Two-Year Expansion of Reston Hospital Center Close to Getting Underway

The second phase of Reston Hospital Center’s master plan for expansion will begin next month, the Washington Business Journal reports.

According to Reston Hospital Center, the work will include:

  • A new parking garage from of the West Wing Entrance (two levels underground and two above) to allow for more convenient parking for patients and visitors
  • A new patient tower and state-of-the-art Intensive Care Unit, located above the Emergency Room
  • Expansion of Inpatient Rehabilitation Services
  • Expansion and renovation of Women and Children’s Services, including the Level III NICU
  • A second catheterization lab
  • refurbishment to the lobbies, cafeteria and other patient-support areas located on the main level of the hospital, along with the addition of a new visitor corridor

The work is budgeted to cost about $72 million, the WBJ reports. These plans were announced in early 2016.

Between 2012 and 2015, the Hospital Center invested more than $40 million in the first phase of the expansion. That included a 180,000-square foot LEED-certified medical office building, expansion of the pre-op department and surgical recovery, the addition of a Pediatric Emergency Room, and more.

Reston Hospital Center says phase two of the expansion is expected to take about two years to complete.

  • MAGA, drinking liberal tears

    The hospital does not need any expansion. It just serves all these young thugs with their drug problems and gunshot wounds. What we need is more age restricted communities and retirement homes to serve the older generations who deserve to live comfortably and watch this town waste away into a deluge of commie inspired ‘mixed-use development’. Sad.

    • 80% disposable

      80% of health care dollars already goes to senior citizen. How much more do you want?

        This is correct – the baby boomers are sucking it all up. Aging while living longer in larger numbers.

        • Reston Realist

          So what is your solution?

          • The Constitutionalist

            Well duh, single payer just like all the other socialist countries. It works sooooooo well for them and they all love it.

        • JeanneInReston

          Yes, what is your solution? Mass execution of everyone over 75?

          • RestonAssurance

            Really, Jeanne? Perhaps those are your thoughts, but I was leaning more toward people accepting that as our boomers age we need to be there for them, and take care of them.

        34% does.
