Pardon the Site Work as We Prepare for the New Outpatient Pavilion

In November 2018, the Arlington County Board  approved plans for the first major expansion of Virginia Hospital Center since 2004. The center- piece of this project is the creation of a new Outpatient Pavilion, which will provide direct, easy access for patients from their arrival at the parking garage to treatment areas. Underground utility work is required to support the new Outpatient Pavilion and Parking Structure.

Utility Work Timeline On Campus:

  • Begin mid June 2019
  • Finish end of September 2019

What is Being Done to Ensure a Safe Campus:

  • Traffic into the Green Garage will be IN ONLY at certain times, and will exit out the back onto Edison St.
  • Signage and Traffic Personnel will always be present
  • All VHC staff enter campus from Edison St. only
