“We are thrilled to receive this important endorsement of this much needed project,” said Michael Sachtleben, president of MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.  “On behalf of the patients who will benefit from this pavilion, which also includes emergency care, we appreciate the collaboration and support among our neighbors and the OGB to help us bring this much needed, state-of-the-art facility to fruition.”

In addition to the OGB, several community organizations involved with the Georgetown Community Partnership including the ANC3D, ANC2E, the Citizens Association of Georgetown, the Burleith Citizens Association, the Foxhall Community Citizens Association and Georgetown University are also behind the plans.
