Now We're Cooking with Gas

Man, the Adventist Health Care Corporation doesn't mess around when it comes to construction - they already had the groundbreaking for the new Washington Adventist Hospital site at White Oak on Monday.  It's a shame that they aren't building the Purple Line!  Then again, they had plenty of time to prepare, given that their first proposal was rejected by the state.

Regardless, it was a triumphant day for East County development and health care services as hundreds of residents as well as health care corporation leaders and elected officials celebrated the occasion.  As County Executive Ike Leggett stated, “The groundbreaking for the hospital is another great milestone in the rejuvenation of the eastern part of our county. It will create thousands of jobs while the hospital is being built and after it begins operations.  It will also inject more than $800 million into the state’s economy in construction alone, with most of that going to our local jurisdictions.”
