The Future of Inova Loudoun Hospital
After more than 100 years of service to Loudoun County, Inova Loudoun Hospital is today at a juncture where the hospital campus requires significant expansion to meet the needs of our ever-growing community.
Loudoun County has grown continually since 1912, the year that Loudoun Hospital first opened its doors in downtown Leesburg.
During the 1990s, a significant gift of land enabled the hospital to plan a state-of-the-art hospital at today's Lansdowne campus. The new hospital opened in 1997, bringing private rooms, a new Birthing Inn and Women’s Center, and expanded surgical and diagnostic services.
In 2005, Loudoun Hospital Center merged with Inova. This new partnership brought much-needed financial stability to support continued growth and expansion of facilities and services throughout the county, ensuring access to quality care close to home.
See below what's in the works for 2014 and beyond as we embark on the next phase of expansion and improvement to meet the needs of our still-growing community.

What's happening in 2014?
In 2014, we have opened or are scheduled to complete a:
- New observation unit with 14 beds for those patients who require a period of observation but do not need the length or level of services of an inpatient setting. This new unit accepted its first patient March 2014.
- Three larger operating rooms plus additional supply and support areas
- New endoscopy unit
- The Natural Birth Center (coming soon)
- Construction of the Ashburn HealthPlex, containing a new emergency department, imaging center and support space (2015 completion)
These projects have helped to kick-off the Inova Loudoun Hospital master plan, which extends through 2020 and beyond.
Inova Loudoun Hospital's master plan has two parts
