Adventist HealthCare traces its roots to the turn of the 20th century when Ellen White, co-founder of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, contributed proceeds from the sale of her book, “The Ministry of Healing,” to help build the Washington Sanitarium. Its first entity, Washington Sanitarium opened in February 1904, and was temporarily headquartered in Washington, D.C., until a permanent facility in Takoma Park, Md., was opened in June 1907.
In the Community
In its early years, the Sanitarium improved the physical, mental, and spiritual health of its visitors through rest, exercise, and a wholesome diet. After World War I it began providing surgical, obstetric, and emergency care. In 1971, the hospital (now called Adventist HealthCare Washington Adventist Hospital) performed the first open heart surgery in Montgomery County, Md.
