Loudoun Hospital at BRMC Denied - Next Stop, Dulles South and Rt. 50
Per this Leesburg Today report, "A sharply divided board of supervisors Tuesday denied the applications required to build the 164-bed Broadlands Regional Medical Center in Ashburn.
A motion by Supervisor Stevens Miller (D-Dulles) to approve the project failed on a 5-4 vote, with supervisors Susan Klimek Buckley (D-Sugarland Run), Kelly Burk (D-Leesburg), Sally R. Kurtz (D-Catoctin), Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling) and Lori Waters (R-Broad Run) voting against it."
The drumbeat is growing louder - from the perspective of residents and economic revitalization interests of the Dulles South region, i.e. the Gateway to Loudoun area south of the airport - this is a positive development. It's absolutely clear to suburban and rural residents and business owners in this fast-growing "Dulles Regional" area of Loudoun, western Fairfax and western Prince William that full-service medical care is needed in the Rt. 50 corridor. It's also abundantly clear that the area is a promising and attractive target for significant economic and community development activity, ranging from a University Campus, to a Medical Center and community sports venues. It's time to shift strategic perspective to the Dulles Crossroads of Rt. 50 and the Loudoun County Parkway.
