Is another hospital hopeless in Loudoun County, VA?
In the aftermath of a close vote by Loudoun County, VA, supervisors to reject a proposed 164-bed hospital in Broadlands, Loudoun officials have started debating whether the vote effectively killed the county's chances of getting a second hospital in the foreseeable future. Board Chairman Scott K. York, who supported the Broadlands project proposed by HCA Virginia, predicted Loudoun would never see another hospital built. But Supervisor Kelly Burk said HCA and Inova Health System own property along Route 50, an area in which Inova has expressed interest in developing a hospital. Other hospital networks also might want to build in Loudoun, she said.
