Montgomery County Approves Suburban Hospital Expansion

After years of debate, Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Md., won approval to move ahead with its expansion plan.

The Montgomery County Board of Appeals approved the 300,000-square-foot expansion Wednesday. It will include a patient-care wing with private rooms, 15 replacement operating rooms, office space and a parking garage.

“This is great news for Suburban’s patients and the future of health care in our region," a hospital spokesperson said. "We look forward to moving ahead with the next steps of this project.”

A neighborhood group fought the expansion because one block of Lincoln Street will have to be closed.

The expansion is expected to cost $230 million.
