Final Loudon County, VA, hospital vote set for Feb. 3
Washington Post, January 19, 2009
Loudoun County, VA, supervisors voted to make a decision Feb. 3 on a proposed 164-bed hospital in Broadlands, with several saying they were eager to have the issue finally settled. The unanimous decision to schedule a vote came after the Board of Supervisors spent more than two hours questioning county staff members and representatives of HCA Virginia, the company that wants to build the hospital. Among the questions were whether the Broadlands location would be consistent with the county's comprehensive health services plan and whether HCA would build a helipad.
