MedStar Georgetown University Hospital Submits Letter of Intent for New State-of-the-Art Medical Surgical Pavilion

August 4, 2015

(WASHINGTON, DC, July 31, 2015)  MedStar Georgetown University Hospital has submitted a letter of intent with the District of Columbia State Health Planning and Development Agency (SHPDA) seeking approval to modernize the existing medical facility by constructing a new state-of-the-art medical surgical pavilion. The pavilion will house surgical, critical care and emergency departments, as well as related administrative functions.  

“This new pavilion will be vital to our ability to continue to deliver the high level of care our community depends on, and will allow us to meet current and increased future demand for world-class care,” said Richard Goldberg, MD, President, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.

To execute the project, MedStar Georgetown has assembled a team with extensive local and national experience to lead this project. Trammell Crow Company (TCC) will provide development management services , HKS will lead the design of the building’s interior, and Shalom Baranes Associates (SBA) will serve as the exterior design architect.  The firms have unparalleled experience in the development, design and construction of healthcare and large-scale projects.  It is anticipated that a capital expenditure of approximately $400 million will be undertaken to complete this project. 

“We will continue to actively work with the community and University through participation in the Georgetown Community Partnership to discuss our overall plan and work collaboratively to begin devising a strategy that satisfies our mutual needs in a way that aligns with the community’s vision,” said Goldberg.

The project will take an estimated 50-60 months to construct.
