(Washington, DC) — On June 22, 2023, Mayor Muriel Bowser, project partners, healthcare providers, workers and members of the community celebrated the topping out of the Cedar Hill Regional Medical Center GW Health facility on the St. Elizabeths East Campus. The Mayor and guests signed the facility’s final steel beam in the hospital’s frame to mark a critical portion of the project completion and to celebrate the progress that has been made so far to deliver the first full-service hospital to DC in over 20 years.
“With today’s topping out, we are even closer to fulfilling a decades long vision — a promise to bring a new high quality hospital and health system East of the River,” said Mayor Bowser. “When we open Cedar Hill, this will be a facility that residents can trust, a hospital that is modern and financially stable. Today, I am grateful for all the workers, healthcare partners and teams who are helping me keep this promise and delivering DC’s first new full-service hospital in over 20 years.”
Cedar Hill Regional Medical Center GW Health will integrate clinical care with existing providers, The George Washington University Hospital and the Urgent Care Center in Ward 8. Additionally, options are underway for a future ambulatory facility in Ward 7. This clinical integration will establish a robust system of care for all District residents and in particular, communities East of the River. The $434.4 million full-service hospital will include 136 beds (with the ability to expand to 184 beds), a verified trauma center, adult and pediatric emergency departments, maternal health and delivery, an ambulatory pavilion for physician offices, clinics, a community space, a 500-car garage and a helipad for emergency transports. Cedar Hill Regional Medical Center GW Health is expected to be completed in 2025.
