Maryland hospital's plan changes, resistance does not
Washington Post, February 28, 2008
Bethesda, MD-based Suburban Hospital has unveiled a $230 million plan to expand its 65-year-old facility, but as it prepares to submit the project for review, the hospital remains at odds with neighbors. The new Suburban plan would improve access to the emergency room, add private patient rooms, create physicians' offices, expand parking and modernize and enlarge the hospital's 15 operating rooms. While the new plan includes changes the hospital says are a response to community concerns, some neighborhood activists say that the hospital has done little to accommodate their main objections.
