Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation, reportedly the first acute rehabilitation hospital formed in Montgomery County, celebrates its 20th anniversary in January with observances among employees across its inpatient and outpatient facilities.

Formed in January 2001, Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation began as a 55-bed acute rehabilitation hospital with an outpatient rehabilitation department. Since then, it has grown to 97 inpatient beds in two locations, as well as seven outpatient clinics located in Rockville, Silver Spring, White Oak and Gaithersburg, according to a news release.

“Twenty years marks a significant milestone for us,” commented Dr. Terrence Sheehan, MD the Chief Medical Officer with Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation. “Having the opportunity to positively impact so many lives and serve the community for all these years is humbling and an honor. We plan to be around for many years to come and provide the world-class care, which has become synonymous with the Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation name.”

— Dr Terrence Sheehan, MD, the Chief Medical Officer with Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation

“Our absolute priorities have always been quality, core values and sense of mission. We infuse them into everything we do, and they have made us who we are these 20 years later.”

— Brent Reitz, President of Post-Acute Care Services

Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation is reportedly the first facility to become CARF accredited in all four specialty services in a 5-state area including Maryland, Virginia, District of Columbia, West Virginia and Delaware. Its patient care programs are designed to treat certain injuries and conditions with specialty services, including amputation, cancer/lymphedema, cardiovascular, occupational therapy, neurological, pelvic health, physical therapy, speech and language pathology and sports medicine.
