Montgomery County’s latest hospital opened its doors to a new rehabilitation center at its White Oak campus in Silver Spring.

Adventist HealthCare system's newly constructed acute rehabilitation center is the first CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) in the County according to Adventist. Adventist also states that it obtained accreditation in all five program areas offered including Amputation, Brain Injury, Spinal Cord, Stroke and General Rehab (CIIR).

The brand-new rehabilitation center gives patients access to private rooms, multiple dayrooms (with kitchens, eating tables, computers and TVs), in-room ceiling track lifts, multiple therapy rooms with advanced technology onsite dialysis and Avasys telemonitoring for optimal patient safety.

Terry Forde, President & CEO of Adventist Health Care, said “I am immensely proud of what we continue to accomplish while also working through a pandemic that remains extremely unpredictable."

"We are thrilled to welcome our first patients into this new state-of-the art hospital and help them rediscover their independence and abilities to be healthy and happy on their road through recovery," said Rob Grange, Administrator. "Combining our rehab services inside of White Oak Medical Center with the hard work of our amazing team creates a unique powerhouse of comprehensive, coordinated care for this community."
