The hospital, part of Mary Washington Healthcare, Inc., is centrally located near the Stafford County Courthouse, and offers a modern medical facility and an array of routine and specialty healthcare services.
Stafford Hospital Center is a 100-bed, full-service, acute care hospital with an adjacent medical office building, providing comprehensive care to the Stafford community. The hospital has a full-service emergency department, state-of-the-art testing and imaging capabilities, and a growing list of associated physicians highly qualified in a number of specialties.
Other nearby hospitals include Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg and Sentara Potomac Hospital located about 20 miles to the north of Stafford in Woodbridge, VA. Many well-known, excellent medical centers and research institutions -- including Virginia Commonwealth University’s Medical College of Virginia in nearby Richmond and Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, DC -- are also within an hour’s drive of Stafford County.
For basic or routine patient-care services, several dozen medical clinics and urgent care centers are scattered throughout the County, making healthcare easily accessible to Stafford residents.
