Inova Alexandria Hospital plans to accommodate development at National Landing and Virginia Tech’s Innovation Campus by expanding it services with a new HealthPlex in the city’s Oakville Triangle neighborhood.
The proposed facility will offer emergency room services, an outpatient care center and medical offices. Construction is expected begin next year, and the facility is slated to open at the corner of Fannon Street and Richmond Highway in the fall of 2023.
“All five Inova hospitals were recently awarded Five Stars by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and we are committed to providing the same five-star quality care at every Inova facility, including the HealthPlex in Oakville Triangle, to every patient we have the privilege to serve,” Inova’s CEO J. Stephen Jones said in a press release.
The project is managed by developers Stonebridge and Carras Partners, which view the HealthPlex as a “community-focused anchor.”
Oakville Triangle has long been proposed as a mixed-use development with office buildings, apartments, businesses and parks. The site was originally chosen for Virginia Tech’s Innovation Campus, but was found to be too small.
Inova does not have a website dedicated to the project, and will conduct a community meeting in partnership with the city on March 26 at 7 p.m. The location of the meeting has not yet been determined.
