Virginia Health Department opposes plans for hospitals in Gainesville-Haymarket

Washington Post, June 21, 2010

Officials with the Virginia Department of Health have recommended that the state's health commissioner deny two proposals that would expand the number of healthcare options in western Prince William County. Applications for new hospitals in the Gainesville-Haymarket area were submitted to the state by Sentara Healthcare and Prince William Health System in January. Although the Prince William Health System's application was well received at a public hearing and by the Health Systems Agency of Northern Virginia, the state's Certificate of Public Need division recommended that both proposals be denied.
