(Washington, DC) – On Thursday, June 22 at 11:00 a.m., Mayor Muriel Bowser will be joined by project partners, healthcare providers, workers, and members of the community to celebrate the progress made at the Cedar Hill Regional Medical Center GW Health. The Mayor will also sign the facility’s final beam to commemorate the milestone. Tomorrow’s celebration will be the biggest milestone since February of 2022 when the Mayor was joined by dignitaries and community members for the hospital’s groundbreaking.
Cedar Hill Regional Medical Center GW Health will be fully integrated with two new urgent care facilities, existing providers, and the George Washington University Hospital to establish a robust system of care for all District residents, including communities east of the Anacostia River. The $434.4 million full-service hospital includes 136-beds (with the ability to expand to 184 beds), a verified trauma center, adult and pediatric emergency departments, an ambulatory pavilion for physician offices, clinics and community space, a 500-car garage, and a helipad for emergency transports. When it opens its doors to patients in 2025, Cedar Hill Regional Medical Center GW Health will be the first inpatient facility to open in the District in over 20 years.
