At Sibley Memorial Hospital, good isn’t good enough. We want to be the best in all of our endeavors and comprehensive in our scope of services. That’s why we are constantly evolving, adding new technology, programs and facilities. More than having the vision to anticipate the needs of our patients and staff, we also have the resolve to put our plans in action.
Construction of our new Medical Building is complete. It features 62,000 square feet of space for physician offices, a three-suite outpatient surgery center and an imaging center with CT, MRI, Radiography and Ultrasound. The building includes ample parking, 12,000 square feet of retail shops and a state-of-the-art auditorium that seats up to 300 and can be divided into thirds for smaller groups.
Major plans are also in the works for:
- A two-phase hospital expansion project (2012-2015), featuring a new patient pavilion with all-private patient rooms that will be wireless and hard wired to accommodate the absolute latest technology
- A new state-of-the-art Cancer Center, which will incorporate the most advanced equipment
- An expanded Emergency Department, which will increase the number of treatment rooms from 17 to 35, with a Fast-Track area and embedded Imaging Services
- Expanded Labor and Delivery services and facilities, including Labor/
Delivery/Recovery/Postpartum (LDRP) rooms and Special Care Nursery
- A greener environment, including LEED-certified* Cancer Center and Pavilion buildings, featuring energy-efficient lighting, window and HVAC systems and energy optimization.
* LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a Green Building Rating System developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
When it comes to new technology, you could say that Sibley Memorial Hospital is ahead of the curve. For example, Sibley is the only hospital serving Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia to offer TomoTherapy, a highly refined form of Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) that is so precise, many tumors can be treated with a single dose, sparing surrounding tissue.
