Our commitment to advancing community health

Dear Friends and Neighbors:

On behalf of the MedStar Health family, I invite you to review the 2016 MedStar Health Report to the Community. As the largest not-for-profit healthcare provider in Maryland and the Washington, D.C., region, we are proud of our mission to serve our patients, those who care for them, and our communities. As such, we are dedicated to meeting the diverse and complex healthcare needs of the individuals and families who live and work in the region.

Our vision of advancing health involves a focus on our MedStar Health SPIRIT values. We aim to provide the highest quality care to our patients, pioneer clinical innovation through world-renowned research, train the next generation of healthcare leaders, and work with communities on health and wellness programs. These initiatives focus on the treatment of the whole person, as well as assist our community in increasing access to care and services, addressing social factors such as food access and transportation, and equipping providers with tools to deliver culturally competent and equitable care.

The 2016 MedStar Health Report to the Community highlights examples of the important work we do across our organization to improve community health and benefits in areas like community health services, research and health professions education, as well as community relations and population health. Together, these stories showcase our deep commitment and ongoing investment in realizing optimal health among the individuals, families and communities we are privileged to serve.
