Thank You for Supporting A New Hospital In Haymarket
All of us at Prince William Health System are excited that in December 2010, the Virginia Health Commissioner approved our proposal to build a 60-bed hospital on the 40-acre site in Haymarket where the Heathcote Health Center is located near the intersection of Route 15 and I-66. We broke ground in June of 2012 and are currently constructing the new hospital, which will be located on the current Heathcote Health Center site.
This new hospital will be part of Prince William Hospital's longstanding commitment to providing healthcare for the Gainesville and Haymarket communities. We are the only health system currently providing healthcare services through Heathcote Health Center in Haymarket, which opened in July 2008.
New Hospital Will Enhance Healthcare Services
In The Area
Currently, Heathcote's emergency room is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can handle any emergency, large or small. The 24-hour ER offers the community:
- Highly-trained emergency medical experts
- Nine beds
- Two trauma bays
- Access to onsite radiology and laboratory
- Fast, accurate diagnostic results
In 2011, more than 18,000 patients were treated by the ER. Heathcote also offers comprehensive radiology services, as well as laboratory services for blood work and rehabilitation services. A number of physician specialties also have offices in the Heathcote facility.
The new hospital will be a 60-bed facility with all private suites. These will include 40 medical / surgical beds, 12 obstetrical beds, 8 critical care beds, 4 ORs, 2 procedure rooms, and a newborn nursery. Assuming the approval processs moves forward as planned, the opening date for the new hospital is scheduled for the first half of 2014.
We were encouraged by the strong community and physician support we received for our new hospital in Haymarket. Thank you for your letters and emails. It made a difference.
Prince William Health System Is The Leading Provider Of Healthcare In The Haymarket / Gainesville Area
Western Prince William County has experienced tremendous population growth. According to Census 2010, the county's population has grown 43.2 percent since 2000.
The Cancer Center at Lake Manassas is a joint partnership between Prince William and Fauquier Hospitals. Since its opening in February 2007, there have been many exciting advancements in services and technology. On May 5, 2011, the Cancer Center officially opened its Breast Center and is nationally accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).
In July 2009, Prince William merged with Novant Health. Since then, we have moved ahead with plans to build new facilities and offer much needed services to the community by adding services at the Manassas campus, such as our renovated and expanded Orthopaedic and Spine Center and Oncology Unit, our Outpatient Infusion Center, and our Heart Catheterization Laboratory.
Our heart catheterization laboratory opened in January 2011. Since then, we have exceeded the number of anticipated procedures by more than 50 percent. We have recently begun to perform emergency interventions in our cath lab, such as stents, and will be expanding more of these services in 2012 with procedures such as electrophysiology.
Haymarket area residents are aware of Prince William's commitment to providing community-based healthcare and have been urging us for years to build a new hospital. Through our merger with Novant, we are able to move ahead with this long-planned project.
