About Us

Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center, an acute-care facility located in Silver Spring, Maryland, is Montgomery County’s first comprehensive cardiac center, performing hundreds of open-heart surgeries and thousands of heart catheterizations each year.

Continuing Our Healthcare Legacy

Opened in 1907 and formerly known as Washington Adventist Hospital, the Medical Center has provided holistic healing to our community for more than 100 years. As we did a hundred years ago, we strive to offer our patients the best, most advanced care possible. To expand access to healthcare in our community, we relocated to a new state-of-the-art hospital and healthcare campus on 48-acres of land, off Route 29 and Cherry Hill Road in the White Oak area of Silver Spring. Our new hospital, along with key healthcare services retained in Takoma Park, strengthens healthcare in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties and the surrounding region.

Leaders in Heart Care

Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center has been your trusted name in heart care since performing the first open-heart surgery in the D.C. area nearly 60 years ago. Today we continue to offer the most advanced, least invasive cardiac and vascular procedures available. Our Center for Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery provides patients with a unique expertise in minimally invasive heart surgery that you won’t find at many other area hospitals.
