ALEXANDRIA, VA – INOVA Health System and DPR Construction marked a significant milestone on April 26 with the “topping out” of its new Inova Health Center – Oakville, which will be a state-of-the-art emergency and outpatient healthcare facility serving the Alexandria area. The “topping out” – the placement of the final structural beam on top of a building – was celebrated by key stakeholders, including hospital staff and construction workers. .
Oakville will include a full-service emergency room, ambulatory (outpatient) surgery, imaging services, primary care, and medical offices. The facility is designed to create a welcoming and healing environment for patients and their families. It will complement Inova’s existing full-service acute care hospital in Alexandria.
