Adventist HealthCare has announced that it will debut a new, all-private room hospital on Sunday, Aug. 25, as Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center opens to serve patients in Montgomery, Prince George’s and surrounding counties.
Construction of the $400 million White Oak Medical Center is fast approaching completion. Exterior work on the 180-bed hospital is nearly complete and interior work in patient care areas will continue over the next few months.
White Oak Medical Center will offer the latest technology and treatments in a comfortable environment, with private patient rooms, natural light and spaces designed to promote care and healing. It will also be home to a nationally-recognized heart program as the new facility replaces Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park. Additionally, Adventist HealthCare will open a 24/7 urgent care center on its Takoma Park campus to treat minor illnesses and injuries.
“We’re pleased to be bringing our mission, high-quality care and compassion to a state-of- the-art, healthcare campus designed for our community and caregivers,” said Erik Wangsness, hospital president.
White Oak Medical Center, off Rte. 29 at Cherry Hill Road and Plum Orchard Drive, is located at the center of Montgomery County’s newest and emerging Life Sciences Gateway and is a neighbor to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. Adventist HealthCare and the FDA have a 10-year collaboration on research that seeks to improve public health.
