New Prince George's (MD) hospital to cost $655M
The proposed Prince George's County Regional Medical Center in Largo will contain just 231 beds and cost approximately $655 million to build and equip, according to operator Dimensions Healthcare Systems and its expert consultants. Dimensions disclosed the official cost and numerous other details of the plan to replace aging Prince George's Hospital Center in an application filed Friday at the Maryland Health Care Commission, which must approve the project. In a prepared statement, Dimensions CEO Neil Moore predicted success in obtaining a certificate of need, the last major hurdle for the project, which is slated to open in January 2018.
