Novant Health Haymarket Medical Center opened its doors earlier this morning for care and services. The new four-story, 60-bed community hospital will serve the growing and diverse northern Virginia community. The 221,000-square-foot facility, designed to transform healthcare, houses a full complement of services, including emergency care, surgery, cancer care, women’s and children’s services, including maternity care, imaging, cardiac diagnostics, interventional radiology and critical care. Haymarket Medical Center strengthens Novant Health’s integrated healthcare network in northern Virginia complimenting its other acute care facility – Novant Health Prince William Medical Center, located in Manassas, Virginia.

Haymarket Medical Center, Novant Health’s fifteenth medical center and first prototypical hospital design, features all-private patient rooms with ample space to accommodate family and visitors. All rooms are equipped with computers for bedside documentation – thoughtfully designed to enable nurses to spend more time at the patient’s bedside. Patients are encouraged to play a role in their care with conversation and verification of information. The first floor has a 20-room emergency department, cardiac diagnostics, interventional radiology, a patient care unit, a café, a gift shop, conference rooms, an interfaith room of reflection, financial counseling and guest services. The second floor hosts surgical services with four state-of-the-art operating rooms and one procedure room on one end and women’s and children’s care on the other end with a labor and delivery unit, two dedicated cesarean section operating rooms, a well-baby nursery and postpartum unit. Again, thoughtfully designed to create efficiency for anesthesia services. The critical care unit, medical/surgical unit, inpatient rehabilitation and pharmacy are located on the third floor.

“We are fortunate to have had the vision of our board of trustees who had the foresight to bring care where it is needed – in western Prince William County,” said Melissa L. Robson, RN, BSN, MHA, president of Novant Health northern Virginia market. “Now, the communities we serve will no longer have to travel for high-quality care that is close to home.”

The hospital’s main entrance, at 15225 Heathcote Boulevard, provides ample space for vehicles to drop off and pick up patients. In addition, free valet service is offered Monday through Friday. Also located at the main entrance is a landscaped courtyard generously donated by the Novant Health Auxiliary. All entrances to the hospital, including the emergency room located at the rear of the facility facing Interstate 66, are located for easy patient access. A separate ambulance entrance nearest to the onsite helipad is away from the main entrance to provide patient privacy.
