Partnering Together in the Community
Known for its community outreach and emphasis on health and wellness, Adventist HealthCare is continuing that tradition by becoming the healthcare sponsor for the Maryland SoccerPlex in Boyds. The site’s 66,000-square-foot main building will be known as the “Adventist HealthCare Fieldhouse.”
The Maryland SoccerPlex has become a recognized name in the Washington, D.C., region for hosting premier soccer, lacrosse, basketball and other sports tournaments. The complex welcomes 1.1 million visitors every year, many from the local area, and hosts sports tournaments that draw players and teams from across the country.
With a renewed focus on concussion education, nutrition and healthy lifestyles, the SoccerPlex is looking forward to finding new ways to reach its visitors through the partnership.
“Adventist HealthCare’s commitment to the local community and expertise is well known, and we are thrilled to partner with them to bring health and wellness education to our community of athletes and families,” said Maryland SoccerPlex Executive Director Matt Libber.
As the SoccerPlex has expanded over the years, so has Adventist HealthCare. As one of the longest-serving health systems in the Washington, D.C. region, Adventist HealthCare recently added Fort Washington Medical Center to its system of care, announced a management services agreement with Howard University Hospital and opened White Oak Medical Center in 2019. The last several years have also included opening urgent care centers, outpatient rehabilitation locations and new services at Shady Grove Medical Center, along with expanding a growing network of physicians.
Terry Forde, president and CEO of Adventist HealthCare, added, “The SoccerPlex has become an important part of this community, and with our history serving the region, our partnership helps to reinforce our commitment to health through active, safe play and family activities.”
