Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center is adding a new patient tower to better serve the evolving needs of our growing community. The tower will update emergency, critical care and medical-surgical care spaces in our hospital that tens of thousands of our neighbors rely upon each year. These updates ensure that our caregivers and the people of Montgomery County have the healing environment they want and the advanced services they need, close to home. The tower design incorporates and furthers Adventist HealthCare’s legacy of whole-person healing in the Washington, D.C., area.
