Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center opened June 7, 2010 and is a part of HCA Virginia, which is the commonwealth's most comprehensive healthcare network.
SRMC is a $175 million hospital with 133-beds and all rooms are private and provide a wide range of in- and outpatient services, including 24-hour emergency care, obstetrics, diagnostic imaging, intensive care, cardiac catheterization and psychiatric care. Located on a 75-acre campus south of Fredericksburg on Interstate 95, the hospital recently won state approval to build a cancer treatment center, which will be built next to the Pogonia Medical Arts Building, an 80,000-square-foot medical office building attached to the hospital.
SRMC has employed over 450 new staff members and it will pay roughly $1.5 million in taxes annually to Spotsylvania County, thereby broadening the county's tax base. Though it didn't open its doors until June 7, Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center was playing an active role in the local community long before admitting patients. In January 2010, it presented Germanna Community College with an unrestricted donation of $100,000 towards their nursing program. In December 2009, the hospital donated $5,000 apiece to fire and rescue squads in the City of Fredericksburg and the counties of Caroline, Spotsylvania and Stafford. And in March 2010, SRMC donated $2,000 to Rappahannock United Way's "The Privilege is Ours, the Honor is Yours" Doctor's Day tribute. Additionally, thousands of dollars have been donated to other organizations in the region throughout 2010.
Spotsylvania Regional operates as a community hospital, with a management team and a board of trustees who live in and are committed to the community. The board will establish policies and set expectations for the hospital based on its knowledge and understanding of local healthcare issues.
This commitment to community is a key philosophy of HCA. With a workforce of more than 10,000, HCA is one of the state's largest employers and healthcare providers. Each year HCA Virginia facilities provide approximately $100 million in free charity care to needy patients and pays $100 million in taxes that support vital community services.
On March 22, HCA, SRMC's parent company, was named among The Ethisphere Institute's fifth annual selection of the World's Most Ethical Companies, which highlights 100 organizations that lead the way in promoting ethical business standards. – less
