A new urgent care facility is opening in Ballston next week.

The Inova Urgent Care and Inova Medical Group primary care offices will open for business Monday, July 15, in their new offices at 1005 N. Glebe Road in Ballston.

The urgent care facility is on the first floor of the building — serving patients for work-related injuries, allergic reactions, broken bones and other such ailments — while the primary care service is on the fourth floor. Dr. Randi Kodroff will be the primary care physician at the facility, but the plan is to bring aboard a second doctor sometime in the future, Inova officials said.

Inova held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new facility Friday morning, attended by Rep. Jim Moran (D), Sen. Barbara Favola (D), County Board Vice Chair Jay Fisette and Board member Libby Garvey, among others. CEO of Inova Alexandria Hospital Christine Candio delivered remarks commemorating the occasion.

“It’s clear that urgent care is needed based on the density here in Ballston,” Candio said. “We’re please to be providing quality healthcare services to Arlington.”

Candio said Inova also plans to soon add sports medicine, behavioral health and OB/GYN services in the near future. She said the office is also targeting small businesses who need services such as workmen’s compensation help and employee physicals.

The urgent care facility is 5,891 square feet and has four exam rooms, two rooms for emergency injuries and a cardiac imaging room. The primary care office on the fourth floor is 2,500 square feet.

“Our slogan is meeting the patient where the patient wants to be met, and that’s here in Ballston,” said Jeffrey Carr, Inova’s growth officer. “The market requires access, value and affordability and this has all three things.”

The facility will compete with other urgent care clinics in the area, including MidAtlantic Urgent Care, Simplicity Urgent Care and Virginia Hospital Center Urgent Care.
