Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital of Maryland Names New Vice President and Administrator

Brent Reitz

Rockville, Md. – Brent Reitz has joined Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital of Maryland as the new Vice President and Administrator. In this position, Reitz will oversee the rehabilitation hospital, which is part of the Rockville-based Adventist HealthCare system. He joined the organization on January 23.

“I am pleased to welcome Brent to Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital,” said Terry Forde, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Adventist HealthCare. “We are confident that his experience with rehabilitation facilities will help us continue to provide exceptional inpatient and outpatient services to the region.”

Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital has inpatient locations in Rockville and Takoma Park and outpatient locations in Rockville and Silver Spring.

Reitz comes to Adventist Rehabilitation from Good Shepard Rehabilitation Network in Allentown, Pa., where he served as Vice President of Pediatrics. He brings more than 11 years of experience to his new role as well as a record of developing successful rehabilitation services in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including opening a new pediatric rehabilitation unit at Good Shepard.

Prior to his time at Good Shepard, Reitz served as director of operations for Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside, N.J. In this role, Reitz was responsible for the operations of five rehabilitation departments in both the inpatient and outpatient service lines.

“I am excited to join such a highly skilled team of professionals and I look forward to continuing the great work that is already going on at Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital,” said Reitz, who will also serve as the Secretary for the Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital of Maryland Governing Board for a three-year term ending in January 2015

Reitz succeeds Doris Reinhart who led Adventist Rehabilitation for 11 years before retiring in December 2011. Under Reinhart’s leadership, the facility became the only acute rehabilitation hospital in a five state region to obtain accreditations from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International in all four specialty areas – Amputation, Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury and Stroke.

Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital of Maryland is the first and only acute rehabilitation hospital in Montgomery County. The facility first opened our doors in January 2001 to offer specialized inpatient and outpatient treatment for persons with functional limitations. Services include comprehensive rehabilitation programs for brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, strokes, amputations, orthopedic injuries and surgeries, sports- related injuries, work-related injuries, cardiopulmonary conditions and neurological disorders. Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital of Maryland is part of the Adventist HealthCare, which includes hospitals, home health agencies and other health care services.
