Regulatory board approved a $567 million plan to upgrade the Washington, D.C.-based MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and add a six-story pavilion.
The hospital proposals include the pavilion, an expanded emergency department, private inpatient rooms, operating rooms and a helipad. As part of the plan, the health system agreed to include a program that provides cancer screenings and treatment free of charge to at least 500 uninsured or underinsured patients. Regulators also reduced the hospital's licensed bed capacity to 538 beds because it has been operating at about 68 percent of its current licensed capacity of 609 beds for the last several years.
The building set to replace a parking lot and attached to the existing hospital on the Georgetown campus.
