The Planning Commission approved a Final Development Site Plan on December 3 to allow for an addition to Bethesda North Hospital. The two-story addition is approximately 16,500 square feet in the location of the existing ‘vendor-lot’. It will provide space for GI/Endoscopy on the lower level and Cardiology/Cath labs on the first level. Due to the location of the addition, the existing helipad will need to be temporarily relocated for safety reasons for a period of approximately four months. The temporary location of the helipad will be in Lot 1 on the southwest corner of the Hospital Campus near the intersection of Montgomery Road and Radabaugh Drive.
