Reston Hospital Center (RHC) has a new plan to built a freestanding emergency room on Leesburg Pike in Tysons.
RHC plans would put the emergency room inside a renovated three-story building at 8240 Leesburg Pike, next to the ramp to Chain Bridge Road, as first reported by the Washington Business Journal.
The new building would be emergency facility only — no medical offices or other hospital-related spaces.
“The provision of necessary emergency health facilities and services to meet the increased numbers of employees, residents and visitors is an essential component of a vibrant Tysons,” RHC stated in its application.
While the building would require a special exception from Fairfax County, it would not require the rezoning that the RHC building proposed at 2000 Old Gallows Road in Tysons would have.
“As Tysons continues to develop with additional office buildings and homes, it is essential that convenient and accessible health care services are available to meet the increasing need,” the hospital wrote in the 2000 Old Gallows Road application.
