Kaiser acquires Hyattsville site for new medical center

Kaiser Permanente will open a new medical center in Hyattsville to replace an older facility on Belcrest Road, the health care company said Wednesday.

Kaiser has acquired land at 5620 Ager Road, part of the the Riverfront at West Hyattsville development from Gilbane Development Co. The 48,000-square-foot facility will be 37% larger than Kaiser’s current facility in that neighborhood, and aims to open in the third quarter of 2022. 

The new Kaiser Permanente Prince George’s Medical Center will have 37 exam rooms, lab facilities and a three-level parking garage. Services provided there will be adult and family medicine, pediatrics, OB-GYN, imaging and a pharmacy. 

Located adjacent to the West Hyattsville station on Metro’s Green Line, the new medical center is expected to serve 27,000 Kaiser members. Kaiser is pursuing the new building “to accommodate a steady growth of membership in the Hyattsville area,” according to a press release. 

Riverfront at West Hyattsville encompasses 18.5 acres and was to include 183 townhomes, 300 apartments, 9,000 square feet of retail and a 4.5-acre community recreation area. Gilbane and its partner, Hogan Development Group, reached a deal to buy 5 acres adjacent to the site from WMATA in December, though it’s unclear whether that deal ever closed. 

“We are proud to partner with Kaiser Permanente to build this new facility and further expand their presence in the County,” said Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks in a statement. “As we work to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, this facility will create needed jobs while expanding access to quality health care for Prince Georgians.”

There are no county or state incentives being applied to the project, according to Prince George’s County Economic Development Corp. We’ve reached out to the county and to Gilbane for more information and will update this post when we hear back.
