HCA Virginia has filed an application to construct a new hospital in Hanover. The proposed hospital’s inpatient bed count would be split into 54 medical/surgical beds and six intensive-care beds. The facility would feature a cardiac catheterization lab as well as four general purpose operating rooms, an MRI scanner and CT scanner.
HCA intends to outfit the hospital by relocating 60 beds from Retreat Doctors’ Hospital in Richmond. The Fan District hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab would also be moved to the new Hanover facility. Other features of the hospital would be relocated from other, yet-to-be-determined local HCA facilities, according to the application.
The application states that the new Hanover hospital would be staffed by about 600 full-time equivalents.
HCA’s arm in the Old Dominion, HCA Virginia Health System, currently runs six hospitals in the greater Richmond region. The proposed Hanover hospital, which HCA calls Ashland Hospital in its application, would operate as a campus of Henrico Doctors’ Hospital and be HCA’s first hospital in Hanover.
“The project aims to better serve patients already seeking care from Henrico Doctors’ Hospital at a location closer to their homes,” Green said. “The proposed location for this hospital, just off of Interstate 95, will be easily accessible for residents, EMS providers and travelers passing through the area.”
HCA’s other greater Richmond region hospitals include Chippenham Hospital in South Richmond, Johnston-Willis Hospital in North Chesterfield, Parham Doctors’ Hospital in western Henrico and TriCities Hospital in Hopewell, which changed its name from John Randolph Medical Center in December.
