On Aug. 25, Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center celebrated its first birthday and a year of providing care to its community through more than 51,000 total patent visits.

“White Oak Medical Center’s first year has been full of joy, excitement and blessings, as well as constant change amid the unprecedented COVD-19 pandemic,” said Anthony Stahl, president of Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center. The hospital opened on Aug. 25, 2019 after moving from its former Takoma Park location where it had been for more than a century.  

Adventist HealthCare leaders cheer on caregivers to show how blessed they are to have them as they provide compassionate care to those in need.

For many years, travelers in just about any part of the world have been able to rely on being guided by a rectangular blue service sign with a big H in the middle. Of course, it
means Hospital.

People who saw that sign could assume that there was a place nearby with people who could help – people with the skills, the experience, and the commitment to take on the most difficult human problems.

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA), the global humanitarian arm of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, in partnership with Adventist Community Services, (ACS), delivered more than 20 pallets of essential medical supplies and protective gear to healthcare workers at Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center in Silver Spring. The 180-bed acute care hospital has been serving critically ill patients affected by COVID-19 in the Montgomery and Prince George’s counties since the pandemic began.

Deseo ser veraz

La muerte sin sentido de George Floyd en Minneapolis el lunes por la noche da lugar a emociones que profundas e impactantes. Ira. Miedo. Decepción. Rabia. Tristeza. Impotencia. Experimentamos todas esas emociones a la vez ya que colectivamente tratamos de lidiar con otro ejemplo de injusticia y violación de los derechos humanos más básicos y fundamentales: la vida misma.

Uno puede reconocer el papel de las fuerzas del orden y también condenar el comportamiento que menoscaba y deshonra los valores fundamentales de nuestra sociedad. Estoy indignado por lo que vi en el video y también por lo que ha sucedido desde entonces. Debemos encontrar una manera de poner fin a la violencia y el abuso.
