Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation Team Supports Local High School Athletes

Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation’s certified athletic trainers (ATC) are skilled and licensed in the prevention, assessment and management of sports injuries, concussions and illnesses. We are honored to continue our partnership with Montgomery County Public Schools to provide athletic training services at 13 local high schools for the 2017–2018 school year.

All ATCs work under the direct supervision of a physician and are on-site for all home athletic events and games at their designated school, providing care to student athletes when necessary. Our ATCs look forward to another year of keeping local student athletes safe and healthy!

Adventist HealthCare Hospitals Receive Patient Safety Awards

This past spring, Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center in Rockville and Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center in Takoma Park were recognized by the Maryland Patient Safety Center for their commitment to quality and patient safety practices.

Both hospitals had projects in the top 20 submissions for the 2017 Patient Safety Innovation Awards, which the center grants to organizations that make a demonstrable difference in safety through innovative solutions.

Two projects by the Shady Grove Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit focused on reducing serious illnesses that can affect premature babies. The health system also received honors for work to reduce inappropriate use of antibiotics and to increase compliance of biomarkers, which help evaluate heart function in patients with chest pain or other potential heart conditions.
