A Packed (Open) House for Greenspring's Newly Redesigned Medical Center

(SPRINGFIELD, VIRGINIA) - The Greenspring retirement community held an Open House for its on-campus Medical Center on Friday, January 27.  The Medical Center at Greenspring recently experienced a renovation and redesign, providing a more modern look and better accessibility options for the community's senior population. The goal of the Greenspring Medical Center is to provide exceptional care to residents while helping them to maintain the independent lifestyle they have grown accustomed to. Approximately 93% of the nearly 2000 Greenspring residents utilize the on-campus Center, which exclusively uses electronic medical records to manage patient care.  The renovation and redesign of the Center, which originally opened in 1998, now includes updated exam rooms, new workstations, lower counters, more accessible hallways and doorways, as well as modernized interior decorations. The Medical Center at Greenspring, which started with only one physician, now includes six physicians, three nurse practitioners, one mental health specialist, and one podiatrist.  Additionally, nearly a dozen outside specialists routinely visit community for appointments including those in the fields of audiology, dentistry, urology, orthopedics, neurology, cardiology, and dermatology, among others. Over one hundred guests visited the Open House including Greenspring staff and residents, as well as Dr. Matt Narrett, the Chief Medical Officer for Erickson Living, and Lee District Supervisor Jeff McKay.  Click here for a photo: (from left to right) Dr. Sangeetha Shan-Bala, Dr. Janice Gable (Medical Director), Dr. Matt Narrett (Chief Medical Officer for Erickson Living), Supervisor Jeff McKay, Greenspring Executive Director Robin Gliboff.
