VHC Health, a community-based hospital providing medical services to the Washington, DC metropolitan area, is excited to announce the official grand opening of its Outpatient Pavilion. The brand new, seven-story facility will provide patients with direct and easy access to treatment facilities immediately upon arrival to the health system’s main campus, while also allowing for more inpatient beds for cancer, cardiac and stroke patients in the Hospital’s pre-existing outpatient area.
“This extraordinary Outpatient Pavilion is world class,” said Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin. “Not just because of the extraordinary architecture. It's world class, not only because of the great technology and equipment that's here, but most importantly, it's world class because of the people that are here.”
“The Outpatient Pavilion was designed to solve a consistent challenge: a growing need for affordable and accessible healthcare in both an inpatient and outpatient setting,” said VHC Health President and CEO Chris Lane. “This expansion project has been long-awaited, and I am proud to see this massive undertaking come to fruition. Now that the Outpatient Pavilion is complete, we look forward to embarking on our next project, the renovation of the main campus hospital to expand much-needed inpatient services.”
The Outpatient Pavilion houses VHC Health’s outpatient surgery, imaging, pharmacy, lab, endoscopy, and physical therapy. The new facility also has 26,000 square feet solely dedicated to women’s health. Women’s health services at the Outpatient Pavilion provide convenient, accessible care options bundled for a seamless patient experience. Developed by a female-led physician team, the continuum of women health services, from prevention to palliative care, includes obstetrics and gynecology, maternal fetal medicine, women‘s health and wellness (including aging and menopause), genetics, breast health, urology, cardiology, advanced radiologic imaging and vascular diagnostics.
“The opening of the VHC Health Outpatient Pavilion expands access to healthcare in our community in a compassionate and people-centered manner,” said Arlington County Board Chair Christian Dorsey. “Consolidating vital and related services under one roof means that patients will spend less time traveling from one location to another, only growing increasingly worried, scared, or frustrated. Instead, they can avoid those negative experiences and come to one welcoming environment to receive focused and connected healthcare. Arlington County is proud to have such a strong partnership with VHC Health in a shared mission of delivering outstanding and accessible patient care and enhancing the overall quality of life for all Arlingtonians.”
The Outpatient Pavilion expansion project also includes an updated parking structure that added over 1,600 spaces for VHC Health employees, opening up space in the main campus’ other garages to provide easier access for patients and visitors.
