2022 Report to the Community

Our commitment to advancing community health


Dear Friends and Neighbors:

As we emerge from the greatest healthcare crisis of our lifetimes, our commitment and connection to our communities have never been stronger, or more important. While vaccines offer protection against COVID-19 and hope and recovery across our communities, the global pandemic further exposed and exacerbated the health disparities within them. These challenges reinforce our duty to reduce health disparities, ensure equitable access to care and create solutions that support long-term holistic health and well-being.

From prioritizing education and access to children’s COVID-19 vaccinations, to the creation of specialized care for aging adults, the 2022 Report to the Community illuminates how MedStar Health directly addresses the needs of the diverse communities for whom we are privileged to provide care. Preventive care is an important strategy for achieving improved health outcomes, including lung cancer screenings for high-risk patients and healthy food planning and provisions for those with chronic illnesses or food insecurity. Providing multi-modal solutions like peer support and access to Fentanyl test kits for those facing addiction, or partnering with local farmers to ensure the nutritious dietary needs of patients and their families, allow our teams to meet people at all stages of their health journey. Our community support also extends to global events and crises, including the war in Ukraine.

We remain grateful for your collaboration and trust in MedStar Health and our ability to deliver our promise, It’s how we treat people—to all people across the many communities we serve. We have proven we are better together, and our unity is essential to ensuring a healthier and more equitable region today, tomorrow, and well into the future.
