  10. About Washington Adventist University and Hospitals

    Some of the partnership programs as well as direct program’s of WAU are offered at Washington Adventist University and Hospital, Washington Adventist University was established in 1904 as a co-educational institution known as the Washington Training Institute. Its purpose was to train young men and women in the liberal arts. In 1907, when the name was changed to Washington Foreign Mission Seminary, the more limited objective of special training for missionaries replaced the original concept of a liberal arts college. In 1914 the college resumed the status of a liberal arts college and took the name Washington Missionary College. In 1942 Washington Missionary College was given accreditation as a four-year, degree-granting institution by The Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Washington Adventist Hospital is a 281-bed acute-care facility located in Takoma Park, Maryland. Opened in 1907, the hospital is Montgomery County’s first cardiac center, performing more than 500 open-heart surgeries and more than 6,000 heart catheteization each year. In 2007, Washington Adventist Hospital celebrated 100 years of providing care to the communities it serves. As the hospital did a hundred years ago, it continues to strive to remain ahead. For this reason, the hospital is in the process of building a new hospital for the next century. The vision of 21st century facilities is becoming a reality on a 48-acre parcel of land near White Oak, about six miles from our current location – in the heart of the hospital’s primary service area. The new hospital, along with services retained in Takoma Park, will strengthen healthcare in our region and expand access to healthcare for the communities it serves in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties and our surrounding areas.
