Adventist HealthCare Finalizes Office Move to Gaithersburg

City Economic Development Program Provides Support for Relocation

Gaithersburg, MDAdventist HealthCare, the first and largest health system in Montgomery County, will move into its new corporate headquarters in Gaithersburg on Monday, April 22.

Adventist HealthCare, which had its offices on Research Boulevard in Rockville since 1996, will be located in a building just off Interstate 270 and Clopper Road, across from the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The new location at 820 W. Diamond Ave. allows the organization to improve office space for its approximately 300 employees and realize savings on its current lease. Adventist HealthCare will occupy the top three floors of the building with the Patient Financial Services department located on the fifth floor.
