Adventist HealthCare Named to List of Top Businesses in Maryland

Adventist HealthCare has been named number 8 among a list of 53 exceptional businesses and organizations in the state of Maryland for its commitment to expanding access to health care for all in the communities it serves and being a "best place to work."

Adventist HealthCare, the largest provider of uncompensated and charity health care in Montgomery County, was honored by The Gazette of Politics and Business in part for expanding access to health care for the uninsured by opening community clinics in Silver Spring and Germantown. Adventist HealthCare's Center on Health Disparities was noted for its Qualified Bilingual Staff program that trains and certifies bilingual employees in proper interpreting skills in order to improve patient-provider communication during a medical encounter.

The organization's annual $1 million health and wellness community outreach effort, which includes free childhood immunizations, cardiac and vascular screenings, cancer screenings, and free and low-cost mammograms, was also highlighted. Adventist HealthCare was further recognized as a "best place to work" for its outstanding commitment to helping its employees achieve professional fulfillment and work/life balance.

"We are honored to be recognized for expanding access to care, building healthy communities and supporting the professional growth of a vital workforce," said William G. "Bill" Robertson, president and chief executive officer of Adventist HealthCare. "These are all important extensions of our mission to improve the health of people through a ministry of physical, mental and spiritual healing."

The Gazette of Politics and Business, which selects the P&B Exceptional 53, is owned and published by the Suburban Maryland Gazette Newspaper, part of the Community Newspaper Group of Post-Newsweek Media Inc., a division of The Washington Post Company.

Adventist HealthCare, an integrated, health-care delivery organization based in Rockville, Maryland, is one of the largest employers in the state of Maryland. The mission of Adventist HealthCare is to demonstrate God's care by improving the health of people and communities through a ministry of physical, mental and spiritual healing. Adventist HealthCare includes Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, Washington Adventist Hospital, Adventist Behavioral Health, Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital of Maryland, Adventist Senior Living Services, Hackettstown Regional Medical Center, Adventist Home Health Services, and the Reginald S. Lourie Center for Infants and Young Children.
