Falls Church, VA – Inova Health System now has a twenty-one acre site for a new medical campus to serve patients in a convenient and central Northern Virginia location after acquiring the remaining twelve acres of land from Monument Realty and its New York-based partner, Atlas Capital Group. The property is located near the Franconia-Springfield Metro Station and adjacent to the current Inova HealthPlex – Franconia/Springfield. Inova was represented by David Millard and Peter Berk with Avison Young.
The acquisition of the additional real estate is part of Inova’s emerging plan to enhance services, thereby more fully meeting the growing healthcare needs of the eastern region of Northern Virginia, including Franconia, Springfield, Mount Vernon and Lorton in Fairfax County and the City of Alexandria. While Inova is committed to continuing to provide emergency and inpatient services in Alexandria and Mount Vernon, the expansion of the Springfield site affords a unique opportunity to serve the broader region more comprehensively.
“This additional land provides unlimited opportunity for programs, services, and facilities that support our mission to provide world-class healthcare to every patient we have the privilege to serve,” said J. Stephen Jones, MD, FACS, Inova President and CEO. “We are steadfast in our commitment to serve our communities, and we are confident that increasing the availability of care in our eastern region is an important next step for our patients, our region, and for Inova.”
“We could not be more pleased with the transaction and the opportunity to support Inova’s plans to enhance health care services and programs throughout Northern Virginia,” said Russell Hines, President of Monument Realty.
Patients will continue to have access to the emergency room, physical therapy, physician offices, and other clinical operations at the Franconia / Springfield HealthPlex leading up to and during construction of the future campus.
Details on the new medical campus, including program and facility scope and size will be finalized in the coming months. While initial concept development is underway, Inova anticipates the facility planning, regulatory, and construction processes will take place over the next several years. Inova will be filing land use applications with Fairfax County next year to seek approval for the project.
