A new hospital could be coming to Virginia's Loudoun County. The Hospital Corporation of America wants to build Stone Spring Medical Center on Route 50.
The $195 million dollar hospital would hold 164 beds, including 124 acute-care beds. It would be the county's second hospital and HCA says it could open in December 2015.
HCA representatives estimate the hospital would create 500 health-care jobs. State and county officials must approve the proposal. Earlier this year, the Loudoun Board of Supervisors rejected HCA's proposal for a 164-bed hospital about five miles away in the Broadlands region. Members of the Board of Supervisors say they're cautiously optimistic about HCA's Route 50 plan.
