TAKOMA PARK, Md. (WDVM) — A hospital in Montgomery County that recently closed its doors will now be reopening for non-COVID-19 patients.

Washington Adventist Hospital was once in Takoma Park, but moved to the Adventist Healthcare Medical Center in White Oak. The building is currently an urgent care center. A new plan to expand capacity at both the hospital in White Oak and at the Takoma Park campus is in place due to a shortage of beds. A total of 63 beds will be converted for patients who are stable. Those patients will be transferred from White Oak to Takoma Park on April 13.

Please note: 

·        All medical/surgical patients will be transferred to Takoma Park from White Oak
 

·        All inpatients for the Takoma Park campus will be registered at, and transferred from, White Oak Medical Center. 
 

·        The Takoma Park campus will not have an emergency department and it will not accept patients directly. 
 

·        The urgent care center on the Takoma Park campus will continue with the same services as it had before.
  All community members who have a medical emergency should dial 911
