The Novant Health UVA Health System Prince William Medical Center, which has served the Manassas community for more than 50 years, has finished a $38 million improvement project to improve patients’ experience as well as access to care.
A new facade, healing garden, interfaith room of reflection, visitor corridor, gift shop and information center were completed in the final phase of construction, according to a news release. These exterior and interior improvements complement many other enhancements completed in earlier phases of the project.
The $38 million multi-year master facility improvement project includes:
- new facade modernizes the look of the medical center
- added patient parking spaces near the entrance for improved access
- patient privacy and comfort improvements include a new visitor corridor
- an energy infrastructure overhaul supports the latest electronic medical record technology
- mechanical room improvements provide patients an improved private room experience
- a renovated intermediate care unit
- new clinical decision unit
- redesigned interfaith room of reflection
- new information center and gift shop
The medical center also opened a healing garden that offers patients, visitors and staff a place of solace and reflection among plants native to Virginia.
The garden was created, designed and planted in partnership with the Virginia Cooperative Extension and the Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners. The master gardeners guided volunteers in planting the garden.
The healing garden was installed after the $38 million multi-year master facility construction project was completed.
