Inova Mount Vernon Hospital in Alexandria announced Friday it plans to spend $43.6 million to renovate and expand its campus, with construction scheduled to begin in 2012 pending regulatory approval.

The 65,000-square foot project will add a new patient tower, two new operating rooms, space for further growth and infrastructure upgrades. Specific services that will be enhanced by the project, according to the hospital, will be medical surgery, orthopedics, joint replacement and rehabilitation.

“This multimillion-dollar expansion is a demonstration of the commitment we have to delivering high-quality care and being the health care provider of choice for the growing Mount Vernon area,” hospital CEO Barbara Doyle said in a statement.

The hospital said with the expanded and upgraded space, patients will enjoy more privacy, state-of-the-art operating room technology and more flexibility to handle surges in patient count during emergencies.

The hospital, at 2501 Parkers Lane, has 237 licensed beds and had $142.3 million in revenue in 2008. In addition to the Mount Vernon community, it serves southeastern Fairfax County.
