Adventist HealthCare is a not-for-profit health services organization based in Gaithersburg, Maryland that employs more than 6,200 people and provides healthcare for more than 400,000 individuals in the community each year. The primary service area for Adventist HealthCare is the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Despite similar names, it is not a part of the California-based Adventist Health, or the Florida-based Adventist Health System. Adventist HealthCare began with the founding of Washington Adventist Hospital by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1907. Originally called the Washington Sanitarium, the health facility treated illness and disease, and taught patients the benefits of exercise, a balanced diet, rest and fresh air. After World War I, the Sanitarium transitioned from a long-term to acute-care facility. It changed its name to the Washington Sanitarium and Hospital and added an acute-care hospital building for surgical, obstetric and emergency cases. Next to the Sanitarium, the Adventist Church built what is now Washington Adventist University. The first group of nurses graduated from the hospital in 1909; nurses later received their training at the college.
