MedStar Georgetown University Hospital president Lisa Boyle said: “The feedback from patients has been very positive.
“It is undeniably a beautiful building with capabilities that will serve our community and our region for decades to come.
“We remain committed to providing physical and spiritual comfort in the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis – care of the whole person.”
Outside Verstandig Pavilion features a six-acre of green space with walking paths and seating facilities.
Verstandig Pavilion, which is claimed to be the only one in the region to offer an advanced intraoperative MRI system (IMRIS), received a $50m donation for its development from Verstandig Family Foundation co-founder and chairman Grant Verstandig.
IMRIS offers real-time imaging that helps neurosurgeons to precisely remove brain tumours and also helps them place electrodes while undertaking deep brain stimulation surgeries.
MedStar Health Washington region senior vice-president and COO Mike Sachtleben said: “The Verstandig Pavilion is a transformational facility.
“All of the new space, with its healing design and novel technologies inside this pavilion truly advances healthcare in the Washington region.
“For generations to come, patients from this region and beyond will be touched by this world-class facility and the world-class team that will care for them.”
