Washington Adventist Hospital Announces Name for New White Oak Hospital, Hits First Major Construction Milestone

White Oak, Md. — Adventist HealthCare Washington Adventist Hospital announced a new name for its White Oak, Md. hospital today, as the project marked a major construction milestone.

The current Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park will be renamed Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center when it opens in the summer of 2019, at 12100 Plum Orchard Drive off Route 29 and Cherry Hill Road.

The $404 million new hospital campus will be located near the Food & Drug Administration headquarters and at the center of Montgomery County’s newest and emerging Life Sciences Gateway, known as Viva White Oak.

The 170-private-room hospital celebrated a “topping out” ceremony today – as the building reached its highest point. The event was marked by hoisting and placing signed steel beams and recognizing the work of partner, Turner Construction.


The construction focus now turns to the interior of the seven-story hospital. Also, work will begin early next year on a 170,000-square-foot medical office building being developed to house outpatient services and physician offices and an adjacent parking garage.

“We’re pleased to be bringing our mission, care and compassion forward into a state-of-the-art facility for our community and caregivers,” said Erik Wangsness, president, Washington Adventist Hospital.
