NORTH STAFFORD, Va. – The Medical Center of Stafford has changed has a new owner.
Woodbridge-based Cardinal Medicine purchased the center on Va. 610 in North Stafford this month from Mary Washington Healthcare, owners of Stafford Hospital (not impacted by the sale) and Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg.
Cardinal Medicine’s headquarters is located across from the Prince William County Government Center. The company expanded in July and opened a second location at Stafford Hospital. It will close that office for the move to the new location on Va. 610.
Cardinal Medicine plans have at least one full-time doctor and staff in place by Feb. 1.
“[Our current Stafford office] is going to well, but an opportunity to take over patients in this new location will be great for us,” said. Dr. Amir Alemzadeh.
Many of the same treatments offered under the care of Mary Washington Healthcare will continue to be offered under Cardinal, including heart and blood pressure screenings, and treatment for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD.
Cardinal Medicine employs six doctors that work between both of their offices. They plan to retain current patients at the center, about 100 per week, and then increase the number of patients to 300 per week and add as many as four doctors at the new facility, said Alemzadeh.
The clinic also plans to work around their patients’ hectic commute schedule.
“Stafford seems to be somewhat a commuter town, so people have needs to appointments before and after work, and that will be a unique need that we serve at his new office, so we’ll have to adjust our staffing to handle that,” said Alemzadeh.
During a previous sale of the Stafford Medical Center at 608 Garrisonville Road on Dec. 7, 2012, it last purchased for $1.5 million.
