Inova to Build New Hospital in Springfield

Inova to Build New Hospital in Springfield

Facility to complement Mount Vernon.

Inova Health System plans to expand its services to the Springfield community on recently acquired property adjacent to the current Inova Springfield HealthPlex.

The expansion results from a current, comprehensive assessment of the communities Inova serves in the eastern region of Northern Virginia. The assessment began more than a year ago and has several components, including the new HealthPlex in Alexandria’s Oakville Triangle announced in early March. The new hospital at Springfield and an Inova HealthPlex at Oakville Triangle/Potomac Yard will extend and integrate with Inova’s nationally recognized system of services in Northern Virginia and will complement the Inova Alexandria and Inova Mount Vernon Hospitals that serve the eastern region today.

As part of the ongoing eastern region assessment, Inova continues to review options for modernization of Inova Alexandria Hospital and is working with partners and city officials on options for the best path forward. All options, from renovating in place to relocation, are under evaluation. Additional information will be made available as this project develops.

“We are working to balance the current needs and challenges of the pandemic with Inova’s commitment and ability to serve our communities for decades to come,” said J. Stephen Jones, MD, President and CEO, Inova. “COVID-19 hit us hard, but it will not prevent us from moving forward as quickly as possible to expand access to care for the communities we are proud to serve. The ultimate plan for the eastern region demonstrates how we thoughtfully use our resources in service to our communities.”

Details on the new hospital, including size, bed capacity, and specific programming will be resolved in the coming months. While initial planning is underway, Inova anticipates the planning, regulatory, and construction processes will take place over the next several years.
