Sibley Saves 15 American Holly Trees
Sibley Memorial Hospital has relocated fifteen 20-feet American Holly trees from the corner of Dalecarlia Parkway and Loughboro Road to the north side of Grand Oaks Assisted Living Facility, also on Sibley’s grounds. The same trees were moved 10 years ago from the west end of the campus which currently houses Sibley’s Renaissance building.
"The trees have been a part of our campus for years and keeping them is important to us and the community. Some Grand Oaks residents have already admired their new location," said Jerry Price, Sibley’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
The trees were moved in preparation for the construction of the new medical building that will begin in the spring. The building will include an outpatient surgery center, diagnostic imaging center, pharmacy, auditorium, physicians’ offices and a covered parking garage for easy access. The building will be environmentally friendly, provide state-of-the-art technology and aesthetically pleasing landscaping.
Serving Washington, D.C. since 1890, Sibley Memorial Hospital is a 328-bed acute care nonprofit hospital. Sibley is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and is licensed by the District of Columbia Department of Health and Human Services.
