In response to burgeoning needs, Reston Hospital Center is poised to expand a key facility that serves its youngest patients.
The center will expand the capacity of its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) this year from 16 to 29 patient beds. The expansion is also intended to provide more privacy for patients and their families.
The expansion includes seven private rooms and three semi-private rooms, according to the hospital.
“The NICU expansion is happening due to capacity needs in the community and to create a more private patient experience,” Jess Norman, a Reston Hospital spokesperson, wrote in a statement to FFXnow.
The expansion is slated to finish off sometime in November or December of this year, Norman said.
In addition to more beds, the expansion includes new equipment, furniture, a family waiting area, and nurses’ station.
