New medical center increases access to best-in-nation care

New state-of-the-art medical center in Woodbridge, Virginia, will provide 24/7 access to Kaiser Permanente’s award-winning medical care.

ROCKVILLE, Md. — Kaiser Permanente will open a new 5-story, state-of-the-art multispecialty medical center in Woodbridge, Virginia. This new medical center, which will open in 2021, will support the growing demand for Kaiser Permanente’s award-winning health care and coverage in and around Prince William County.

Kaiser Permanente is recognized nationally and regionally as one of the top health systems for excellence in patient care outcomes. Year over year, Kaiser Permanente has achieved outcomes that are unmatched by other health systems in the nation, according to the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s Quality Compass. These accolades include being among the most successful health systems in the nation for breast cancer screening, colorectal cancer screening, and cervical cancer screening.

“We are excited to open a new multispecialty medical center, which will include a broad array of clinical services such as an integrated multidisciplinary cancer care program and a comprehensive women and maternal health program,” said Kim Horn, regional president for Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States. “Our new medical center will highlight our integrated health system by offering primary care and specialty services in one convenient location. It will be tailor-made to support our members while they are healthy or if they develop complicated disorders or chronic diseases by offering the most up-to-date methods and technology to quickly diagnose and treat disorders and diseases.”

Located at 13285 Minnieville Road in Woodbridge, Virginia, the 241,357-square-foot medical center will be the seventh major Kaiser Permanente hub in the region. It will offer an unparalleled array of primary and specialty medical care services, including pharmacy, lab, women’s health, specialty care, and behavioral health services — all conveniently located under one roof.

This new hub will be equipped with the most innovative and advanced health care technology designed to enhance each patient’s care experience. Members can also utilize Kaiser Permanente’s suite of telehealth services with physicians in the medical center.

“I am proud that we are adding a medical hub in Prince William County so our patients will experience even easier access to our award-winning physicians,” said Richard McCarthy, MD, associate executive director of the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group, which provides care for Kaiser Permanente members in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. “This building was designed with help from our doctors to ensure our patients get the best and broadest range of integrated care possible in the Mid-Atlantic. Our patients are amazed by the quality, service, and efficiency of their care when Kaiser Permanente primary care doctors work in the same building as our specialists, and are all supported by cutting-edge radiology, lab, pharmacy, observation unit, and surgical suites.”

Kaiser Permanente hubs like this one offer not only primary care services, but also the ability to care for members with health concerns that are too complex for a traditional doctor’s office but do not require a hospital admission. A full range of physicians are available around the clock to provide expertise and care.

This year, Kaiser Permanente’s cancer program for Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia received a Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation from the Commission on Cancer, a quality program of the American College of Surgeons. The accreditation recognizes that Kaiser Permanente provides the full range of cancer care: prevention, early diagnosis, cancer staging, optimal treatment, rehabilitation, life-long follow-up for recurrent disease, and end-of-life care.

Potential members can learn more about Kaiser Permanente’s outstanding care at the Clinical Excellence website. Information is available about Kaiser Permanente’s health system, the award-winning Permanente Medical Group physicians, and the care they provide in areas such as maternity, pediatrics, oncology, neurology, and cardiology.

“It has been a pleasure working with so many different Kaiser Permanente leaders over the past 2 years to assist in bringing this medical center to the Occoquan District in eastern Prince William County,” said Ruth Anderson, Occoquan District Supervisor. “This center is close to public transit and Interstate 95. Those who wait with much anticipation for the 2021 opening include patients who now travel long miles on congested roadways to receive care, future medical center employees who will be able to work where they live, those of us who have been working toward more jobs in Prince William, and the adjacent residents who will have access to care and a wellness park with universal playground equipment! Welcome Kaiser Permanente!”

Kaiser Permanente is committed to the communities that are home to its members and employees. For example, Kaiser Permanente is helping Prince William County convert a decommissioned commuter parking lot into a dynamic neighborhood park, which will have a trail connecting to the new medical center.

Kaiser Permanente will open 3 new medical centers in Virginia this year. The 40,000-square-foot Alexandria Medical Center at The Exchange in the Potomac Yard area of Alexandria, Virginia, opened in April 2019.

The 38,375-square-foot Colonial Forge Medical Center, which will be located on the Stafford Hospital campus, and the 36,423-square-foot Haymarket Crossroads Medical Center, which will be conveniently located near I-66, will both open later in 2019. 

Out of more than 1,000 health plans evaluated this year, Kaiser Permanente’s private and Medicare plans in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, all received the highest possible rating (5 out of 5) from the National Committee for Quality Assurance. The organization’s Medicaid plans in Maryland and Virginia received the highest rating as well. According to the NCQA’s Health Insurance Plan Ratings 2018-19 national report, Kaiser Permanente’s health system in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia is among the top 1% of plans in the nation as evaluated by NCQA’s rigorous review process.

Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States also received the highest possible rating of 5 out of 5 stars from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for quality and service. This is the seventh year in a row the organization has received 5 out of 5 stars.
