Shady Grove Adventist Emergency Center at Germantown, MD
Opened in 2006, the Shady Grove Adventist Emergency Center is located on Route 118, just west of I-270 and across from the Germantown Town Center.
Emergency Medical Care
The Center provides the same emergency medical care that patients can receive at a hospital emergency department. Advanced technology allows the Emergency Center to be closely linked with Shady Grove Adventist Hospital. For example, the hospital’s new Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS), which provides digital x-ray images, allows doctors at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital to review images from patients at the Shady Grove Adventist Emergency Center.
For patients who come to the Emergency Center, but require inpatient hospital care, state and county officials have worked closely with Shady Grove Adventist Hospital to establish transport protocols for the Center.
