Fall 2019 News Briefs
GOLF EVENT HELPS RAISE FUNDS FOR NEW HOSPITAL
Nearly 150 golfers hit the links at the Washington Adventist Hospital Foundation’s 18th Annual Gold Classic to benefit Our Community Transformed, the capital campaign for the new Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center.
The event raised more than $215,000 to support the state-of-the-art hospital, which will open in the summer of 2019. We extend our thanks to the community partners and event sponsors who enjoyed a sunny day at the Country Club at Woodmore in Prince George’s County. Turner Construction Co. and the project’s architect , Callison RTKL, generously served as the Golf Classic’s underwriters. Other major sponsors included NAI The Michael Cos., Trammell Crow Co. and the U.S. Anesthesia Partners.

WASHINGTON ADVENTIST LAUDED FOR QUALITY HEART CARE
Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center has received the 2018 Platinum Performance Achievement Award for its high quality care of heart attack patients – one of only 203 hospitals nationwide to receive the honor.
The recognition was awarded by the American College of Cardiology’s NCR ACTION Registry to recognize the hospital’s commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack patients. Each year in the United States, more than 700,000 individuals have a heart attack.
To receive this distinction, Washington Adventist Hospital consistently maintained the highest standards outlined in the Registry’s guidelines for two straight years and achieved the top level of performance in the program’s quality measures.
