Washington Adventist Hospital is a 252-bed acute-care facility located in Takoma Park, Maryland. Opened in 1907, the hospital is Montgomery County’s first cardiac center, performing hundreds of open-heart surgeries and thousands of heart catheterizations each year.
100 Years of Caring for the Community...and Counting!
In 2007, Washington Adventist Hospital celebrated 100 years of providing care to the communities it serves. As the hospital did a hundred years ago, it continues to strive to remain ahead. For this reason, the hospital is in the process of seeking state approval to build a relocated hospital on a 48-acre parcel of land near White Oak, about six miles from our current location and within the hospital’s service area. The White Oak hospital, along with medical services retained in Takoma Park, will strengthen health care in our region and expand access to health care for the communities it serves in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties and our surrounding areas.
Leading Edge, State-of-the-Art Procedures
Washington Adventist Hospital has provided the Washington D.C. region with the most advanced, least invasive cardiac and vascular procedures with skill, compassion and experience for more than 50 years. The hospital was the first in the D.C. area to perform open heart surgery, numerous cardiac procedures, including mitral valvuloplasty, and the first in the mid-Atlantic to perform a revolutionary type of surgery called Mini-Maze that can correct atrial fibrillation (AF), a common form of heart rhythm abnormality and a major cause of stroke.
Hospital-based Radiation Oncology
Washington Adventist Hospital’s radiation oncology program is the first hospital-based facility in all of Montgomery and Prince Georges Counties, and the first facility in the Washington Metropolitan area to be accredited by the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO).
