Howard U. Considers Trauma Center Redevelopment

To pave the way for new development, Howard University officials are considering shifting the school’s trauma center hospital from its current site on Georgia Avenue in northwest D.C.

While the site aligns with other Howard real estate projects, it could be redeveloped in the coming years as part of the school’s master plan for the campus.

The idea, floated earlier this month at the university’s community advisory committee meeting, was first reported on social media by D.C. resident Eric Fidler, who tweeted that the university had “finally announced its intention to rebuild Howard University Hospital elsewhere on campus and redevelop the hospital as 3 million square feet of private, non-academic development.”

The 15-acre hospital site includes Howard’s colleges of medicine and dentistry.

The plot is near the U Street NW and Shaw neighborhoods, where large-scale projects have taken place over the past few years.
