Work on Virginia Hospital Center’s expansion project has hit a new milestone.
After months of excavation at the site, the first concrete footers are now being poured for the hospital’s new parking garage.
“These footers will support the foundation of the garage and ensure it remains steadfast and strong through the many years to come,” VHC said on social media.
The project was approved in 2018, on a split 3-2 County Board vote amid objections from some nearby residents. It includes a large parking garage and a seven-story outpatient pavilion, “which will provide direct, easy access for patients from their arrival at the parking garage to treatment areas.” The outpatient facility will allow the addition of about 100 beds to the hospital.
The parking garage is expected to be complete by the second quarter of 2021, while construction on the pavilion is set to wrap up by the end of 2021, according to a project web page.
