Howard University has announced plans to revitalise the Howard University Hospital in Washington D.C., US.
The revitalisation plan includes construction of a new 225-bed teaching hospital with a Level 1 Trauma Center on the campus.
The new hospital will be constructed on the former College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences (Annex I/II) site, which is located between Bryant Street and W Street NW.
This project will get the support of a $100m federal government budget along with $25m as infrastructure investment, $26.6m as programmatic support from the District of Columbia over six years.
It is also expected to benefit from a $225m, 20-year tax abatement on commercial development sites owned by Howard.
The university noted that the 600,000ft2 revitalisation project is a part of its District of Columbia-approved 2020 Central Campus Master Plan (CCMP).

Howard University Hospital revitalisation plan will also include construction of a new medical office building, which will house a new Howard University Cancer Center facility.
Howard University president Wayne A I Frederick: “Howard University Hospital has an unrivaled history of serving the under-resourced communities in our nation’s capital. But to ensure this treasured institution could survive required a new vision for how the hospital would operate.
“This critical revitalisation effort will honour the legacy and mission of the hospital while empowering it to once again become a leading health care institution dedicated to eradicating health inequities and serving the most vulnerable individuals.”
Additionally, Frederick has announced $785m investment in campus construction initiatives that includes three new multidisciplinary academic facilities as well as other major renovations.
