The debate over a proposed hospital has spread to the Leesburg (VA) Town Council, as members voiced concern that the project could affect Inova Loudoun Hospital's Leesburg campus. The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors has until May to decide whether to allow HCA Virginia to build the 164-bed Broadlands Regional Medical Center. Council members, expressing concern that Inova might reduce its Loudoun operations if its competitor's project is approved, passed a resolution expressing support for maintaining and expanding the Leesburg facility. Supervisors said the Inova medical center is vital to the town's economy and its efforts to attract a university campus.
