About Shady Grove Medical Center - Adventist HealthCare
Shady Grove is a 444-bed community hospital in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C. We are one of two flagship acute-care hospitals for Adventist HealthCare, a not-for-profit, faith-based organization that includes a rehabilitation hospital and outpatient services, as well as home health care.
Shady Grove is known for quality, compassionate care. We have earned national recognition for cardiac and vascular services, cancer care, and surgical services including joint replacement and bariatrics. Our emergency room is among Maryland's busiest, and we are home to robust maternity services. We also provide inpatient and outpatient
mental health care for children and adults. Our pharmacy has academic affiliations with University of Maryland, Howard University and Shenandoah University School of Pharmacy. Our pharmacy uses a decentralized model, with pharmacists in different units of the hospital, participating in multidisciplinary rounds and patient care. Pharmacists are involved in patient education, discharge medication counseling and as champions of safe medication practices. Through collaborative practice, our pharmacists are responsible for Coumadin and other anticoagulant d...osing, renal dosing, TPN formulation, IV to PO, pharmacokinetic service and antimicrobial stewardship.
