Hammes is honored to celebrate the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new 250,000-square-foot VHC Health Outpatient Pavilion in Arlington, Virginia.

Milwaukee, WI, June 15, 2023 – Hammes Healthcare, a leading provider of consulting and project delivery services, is honored to celebrate the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new VHC Health Outpatient Pavilion in Arlington, Virginia.

Construction of the new 250,000-square-foot outpatient pavilion began in 2019 with the goal of expanding VHC Health’s outpatient capacity and improving access to care. The new pavilion is adjacent to VHC Health’s main campus and offers numerous outpatient services, including surgery, women’s imaging, pharmacy, an outpatient lab, endoscopy and physical therapy. A new 1,700-car parking garage was also constructed in conjunction with the new Outpatient Pavilion, increasing accessibility and expanding parking for the entire campus.

Hammes was engaged by VHC Health initially to develop options that would support the system’s goal of expanding ambulatory access to patients on the main campus. Hammes worked closely with VHC Health leadership throughout the approval process and has served as project manager for the last seven years.

"Throughout the entirety of this project, the Hammes team consistently brought detail-oriented and creative solutions to the table, always with the end goal in mind," said Richard J. Krumenacker, PE, Vice President, Facilities, Construction & Health System Services for VHC Health. "They helped us navigate numerous challenges, including the aftermath of the pandemic and supply chain constraints, to successfully deliver this facility that will provide much-needed expanded patient care to the community."

“As a resident of the Washington DC metro area for more than 20 years, I personally know many people who have and will continue to receive care at VHC. This organization has expanded its footprint and also its long-standing reputation and commitment as a leading provider of quality care to this community,” said Nancy Connolly, President of Hammes Healthcare. “It is a true joy, both personally and professionally, to celebrate this milestone with my fellow colleagues, project partners and VHC Health.”
