Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States, a not-for-profit health plan and care provider, opened the doors to its new Tysons Corner Medical Center on Monday, Aug. 13, offering members in Northern Virginia a broad array of medical services conveniently located under one roof. The 200,000 square-foot medical center also provided approximately 106 new jobs.
“Our new Tysons Corner Medical Center not only provides convenience by making it easier for Kaiser Permanente members in Northern Virginia to access our top-notch care and 21st century technology, but also represents critical job growth,” said Marilyn Kawamura, President, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of the Mid-Atlantic States, Inc. “This new facility is our largest of 11 medical centers in Virginia and is a tangible example of Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to the communities we serve throughout Virginia.”
Located at 8008 Westpark Drive in McLean, the six-story facility features 128 exam rooms, 84 provider offices, and employs 500 physicians and staff. Tysons Corner Medical Center boasts more than 20 medical specialties including several new services for Kaiser Permanente members in Virginia such as interventional radiology, nuclear medicine (non-cardiac), a three-bed outpatient procedures suite and peritoneal dialysis. Several services are available to Kaiser Permanente members 24/7 including laboratory, pharmacy, a full range of radiological services, as well as urgent care and a 43-bed clinical observation unit.
“The new Kaiser Permanente Tysons Corner Medical Center will provide Kaiser Permanente members with an unparalleled level of convenience and coordinated care,” said Bernadette Loftus, MD, The Permanente Medical Group associate executive director for the Mid-Atlantic States.
A differentiating element of the Tysons Corner facility is the 24/7 clinical observation unit and urgent care services. In the clinical observation unit, Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group physicians can provide care for acute illnesses in a setting that is efficient and coordinated. For instance, a member suffering from a severe asthma attack can visit Kaiser Permanente’s clinical observation unit to receive treatment and can be monitored in the facility overnight and for 23 hours and 59 minutes, if needed.
Tysons Corner Medical Center was designed with the member in mind. The state-of-the-art facility features a meditation garden, Wi-Fi in all patient waiting areas, and medical center exam rooms are fully wired with Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect® further enhancing the member experience.
