University of Maryland Capital Region Health Medical Group Opens New Multispecialty Outpatient Clinical Practice at the National Harbor
CHEVERLY, MD (July 23, 2020) – University of Maryland Capital Region Health Medical Group has opened a new outpatient practice at the National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland. The multispecialty practice occupies 19,000 square feet of leased space at The Medical Pavilion at National Harbor.
This clinical practice, located at 251 National Harbor Blvd. Suite 500, includes 6 procedure rooms and 25 exam rooms.
The practice offers multiple specialties, including Family Medicine, Women's Services including Urogynecology, Bariatric Surgery, General Surgery, Cardiology, Neurology, Otolaryngology, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Pulmonology. Patients will benefit from an array of services including headache management, pulmonary function testing, cardiac stress testing and non-surgical facial enhancement procedures such as microdermabrasion, Botox® injections and dermal fillers.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the clinical practice design incorporates enhanced safety features and an open space concept to support physical distancing. In addition, telemedicine options are available for patients to have virtual appointments with their medical providers.
"Expanding the services we offer to the community in an outpatient setting is a key priority for UM Capital Region Health," says Nathaniel Richardson, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer at UM Capital Region Health. "As much as we are focused on providing high-quality compassionate care in the hospital setting, we are equally committed to providing options with the same level of care in the outpatient setting."
The new practice opens in advance of opening a new hospital, the University of Maryland Capital Region Medical Center, in Largo, MD. The new hospital represents a $543 million investment by Prince George's County, the State of Maryland and UMMS. The 600,000 square foot flagship facility will include 205 private inpatient rooms and eight operating rooms. The outpatient practice that currently sees patients at its Cheverly location will relocate to the Largo campus
"Opening this new practice is a critical milestone for the Medical Group and allows us to provide convenient service to residents in southern Prince George's County and the surrounding area," says Tiffany Sullivan, Senior Vice President of Clinical Integration and Ambulatory Services at UM Capital Region Health. "We know that providing the community with additional options for women's health services and physicians who have proven track records in their areas of specialty is an important need to meet. We are committed to meeting those needs now and in the future."
The Medical Group also has outpatient practices in Cheverly, Suitland, Bowie and Laurel.
