OVERALL PROJECT TIMELINE
The project timeline for the construction of the Medical/Surgical Pavilion is under review. As soon as the schedule/project timeline is set, we will announce. Anticipate a late May/early June release.
Questions about the Medical/Surgical Pavilion construction should be directed to Construction Executive Matt Maio, Trammell Crow Company, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-360-5735.
Questions about other campus construction (East/West Road, Yates Roof, Entrance 4, etc), please contact Alex Berley - email@example.com phone # 571.722.6459, or Gina Bleck - firstname.lastname@example.org phone # 202.687.2319.
The 477,000 square foot Medical/Surgical Pavilion will house 156 private patient rooms, a new Emergency Department, larger operating rooms, a rooftop helipad with direct access to the Emergency Room and three levels of underground parking. The proposed plan more than doubles the existing green space, providing for open, attractive landscaping that offers the immediate community an appealing and charming landscape.
As a long standing member of the community, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital takes great pride in being a good neighbor and minimizing disruptions during construction of the Medical/Surgical Pavilion. We appreciate your patience as we construct a world class facility that will provide the community with enhanced access to the world class care we currently provide.
