Raising Awareness, Supporting Care

Our commitment to improve the health of the community inspires individuals, organizations and companies to donate financially to Adventist HealthCare. Gifts of all sizes play an important role in helping us expand our programs, as two events held this past spring illustrate. We appreciate the donors who contribute to these initiatives, which help us grow our comprehensive system of healthcare and serve our community.

AMPUTEE EVENT

Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation held its fourth annual Amputee Awareness 5K Walk, Wheel or Run event in April at Wootton High School in Rockville.

More than 220 participants helped raise nearly $50,000 to support services and equipment for amputee patients to further improve their quality of life and empower independent living. Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation’s amputee program, which treats nearly 300 patients annually, was the third of its kind in the U.S. to obtain certification from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.

Many thanks to this year’s host sponsor, Medical Center Orthotics & Prosthetics, as well as all the sponsors, participants and volunteers who made the event a tremendous success.

WHITE OAK MEDICAL CENTER

Nearly 130 golfers teed off at the 19th Annual Golf Classic in May. The event, held at The Country Club at Woodmore in Bowie, raised more than $240,000 to benefit Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center, which opened Aug. 25.

Thank you to all the sponsors and participants who made the event a success, including title sponsor NAI Michael, as well as Co-underwriters CallisonRTKL, the project’s architect, and Turner Construction Co. Other top sponsors included the Columbia Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, DARCARS Toyota Silver Spring, Trammell Crow Co. and US Anesthesia Partners-Maryland.
