Reston, VA

The Naderi Center for Plastic Surgery & Dermatology has relocated its offices from Herndon to Reston, according to a company release.

Facial plastic surgeon and founder Shervin Naderi says the move will improve patient’s access to specialized and advanced surgical care. The new location (1850 Town Center Parkway, Pavilion II, Suite 551), is within the Reston Hospital campus.

Here’s more from Tuesday press release:

Other benefits include easy access to Metro transportation, free parking, valet parking at a nominal cost and a convenient location on the hospital campus with plenty of accommodations and eateries nearby. Being on an HCA Hospital campus also provides extra unparalleled safety.

With two locations, one in Chevy Chase, MD, and the new office in Reston, VA, Dr. Naderi and his team will be able to better serve both local and out-of-town patients. Dr. Naderi says that he’s always been focused on providing exceptional service for patients and ensures that their needs are put first. He emphasized, “We never double book or rush patients through an appointment. I want patients to be treated like my own family, with the same care, respect, and attention to detail I’d give them.”

The center has one other location in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Free garage and surface parking is available at the Reston location, as well as valet parking for a fee.

Reston Hospital Center‘s $72 million expansion is expected to be completed by the first quarter of next year, a few months later than originally estimated.

The completed pieces of the project include a new 18-bed inpatient rehabilitation center, an expanded 24-bed Intensive Care Unit, a second lab for the cardiac services unit, a new parking garage for patients and visitors at the West Wing entrance, and four rooms for high-risk obstetric patients.

A new cafeteria and seating area has also been opened.

Progress on renovations to visitor areas, including a new cafeteria, glass concourse, main entrance, and lobby, is underway, according to Todd McGovern, said director of marketing and communications for the hospital.

McGovern said the upgraded main entrance and lobby will improve navigation between the main entrance, west wing entrance, pavilion entrances, and the emergency department.

“We will be making an additional investment into the modernization of several patient care areas to elevate our entire facility to a consistent level for a best-in-class patient experience,”  McGovern said.

The new patient-visitor parking garage, which has more than 400 parking spaces, opened in the summer of this year.

The 231-bed hospital announced its plan to expand on its 30th anniversary. The phased project will add more than 63,000 square feet to the building, which is part of Tennessee-based health giant HCA Healthcare.

Reston Hospital Center is planning to improve its neonatology services for babies that need advanced or long-term care.

The center is partnering with Children’s National Health System in Washington, D.C. Beginning this month, the care team from Children’s National will provide services for babies at RHC who need advanced care due to premature birth, labor complications or birth defects.

Dr. Robin Steinhorn, senior vice president at Children’s National, said a board-certified neonatologist will be on site at Reston Hospital Center at all times, bringing services closer to home for patients.

The news comes as the center expanded its critical care unit for babies and high risk pregnancies.

“Children’s National is the nation’s leader in neonatal care. Partnering with them complements the recent expansion of our Women’s and Children’s Services,” says John Deardorff, president and CEO of Reston Hospital Center.

The pediatric hospital has been named the county’s sixth best pediatric hospital by the U.S. News and World Report. For the last three years, it has also been ranked number one in newborn care.
