WASHINGTON, D.C. — MedStar Georgetown University Hospital has submitted a Certificate of Need application to the District of Columbia State Health Planning and Development Agency to move forward with a new $560-million state-of-the-art medical and surgical pavilion to be constructed next to the existing hospital.
The 477,000-square-foot pavilion will house a new and modernized emergency department with the latest high-tech treatment bays, new operating rooms, surgical and critical care services, new intensive care beds with the latest IT capability, a rooftop helipad and the most advanced imaging services dedicated for emergency and critical care patients. Five levels of the building will be above ground and there will be three levels of underground parking. The project also allows for improved traffic patterns, landscaping and the creation of more green space on the hospital campus.
The Clark Construction Group has been providing preconstruction services. Trammell Crow Company has been providing development management services, HKS Architects is leading the design of the building’s interior and Shalom Baranes Associates is the exterior design architect.
In addition to constructing the new facility, the existing building will undergo renovations to certain medical and surgical services to achieve more efficient overall hospital operations.
The targeted completion date is 2020.
