Gresham, Smith and Partners (GS&P), a design and consulting firm, announced the completion of a new 230,000-square-foot hospital and 100,000-square-foot medical office building (MOB) at HCA’s StoneSprings Hospital Center in Loudoun County, Va.
Brasfield & Gorrie, Nashville, Tenn., served as general contractor on the new $95.8 million StoneSprings Hospital Center which was constructed for HCA Virginia Health System.
“I am very pleased with GS&P's design,” says Mark Rader, CEO, StoneSprings Hospital Center. “The exterior of the building is modern, yet ties in the history of Northern Virginia through the use of stone, reminiscent of the stone walls still found in the surrounding countryside that predate the American Civil War.

“The interior layout is patient- and visitor-friendly, with ample space for guests to wait comfortably while a loved one is being cared for. I am very happy with the completed project and look forward to our community benefiting from this facility for many years to come,” Rader says.
GS&P fully redesigned HCA’s existing prototype hospital to reduce square footage, improve flow and organize the departments more efficiently. Intuitive wayfinding and visual connections from interior to exterior throughout the building help patients and staff to navigate the building.
A main public corridor serves as a spine for patients and visitors to easily reach any area they need to access, while a separate passageway for staff creates an efficient link between departments. The greenfield hospital’s palette of neutral colors in stone and brick reflect its location along a corridor that transitions from Colonial-style developments of eastern Loudoun County to the farmland and historic sites of western Loudoun County.
The hospital features 124 all-private patient beds and will provide a comprehensive range of medical services, including a full-service, 24/7 emergency department (ED), medical- surgical services, and labor and delivery services. It also offers pediatric and intensive care services, a cutting-edge cardiac catheterization lab, and state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging and interventional equipment.
In addition to the hospital facility, Brasfield & Gorrie and GS&P teamed up on the design and construction of the MOB near the hospital on the same 51-acre campus site, which is located less than 10 miles from Dulles International Airport.
The new hospital center will serve Loudon County, one of the fastest-growing areas in the country; it is the first new hospital to be constructed in the county in 100 years.
Brasfield & Gorrie broke ground on the hospital in March 2014 and completed construction in October 2015.
