MedStar Washington Hospital Center is a not-for-profit, 926-bed, major teaching and research hospital. It is the largest private hospital in the nation's capital and among the 50 largest hospitals in the nation. Founded in 1958, when three specialty hospitals merged to form a single institution, the hospital offers primary, secondary and tertiary health services to adult and neonatal patients. It shares a 47-acre campus with three medical facilities in Northwest Washington, D.C.
The MedSTAR Trauma program is one of the nation's most advanced level I shock/trauma units and is designated by the American College of Surgeons. The adult burn center is recognized as a national model in burn care therapies and the region's only adult facility. MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a valued member of MedStar Health, is dedicated to delivering exceptional PATIENT FIRST health care. We provide the region with the highest quality and latest medical advances through excellence in patient care, education and research
Situated in the Nations Capital, we assess and treat a large volume of people with intentional and unintentional injuries. Keeping our Patient First mission, we stay involved in prevention and injury outreach efforts in the surrounding communities to include Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia.
As a member of the National Network of Hospital-based Violence Intervention Programs (NNHVIP), we understand that engaging the community is one powerful way to stop the revolving door of admission while reducing recidivism and changing lives.
The Trauma Prevention and Outreach efforts of MedStar Washington Hospital Center extend well into the community, partnering with many local, state and federal agencies, ensuring the safety of our citizens.
A few of our outreach efforts include:
Concussion, alcohol and youth violence prevention, domestic violence and crime victim assistance and medical/legal needs assistance.
