Loudon County, VA, board won't revisit Broadlands hospital

Washington Post, February 19, 2009

The Loudoun (VA) Board of Supervisors has laid to rest seven years of debate over a proposed 164-bed hospital in Broadlands, voting 5 to 4 against a motion to reconsider its Feb. 3 rejection of the project. The vote came a day after Inova Health System had moved forward with plans to build an 80-bed hospital in the county. Inova officials announced that they had filed a letter of intent with Virginia officials to build the facility and will seek the required certificate of public need from the state health commissioner. The Broadlands hospital, proposed by HCA Virginia, had a certificate of public need from the state but could not win zoning approval from county supervisors.
