About Shady Grove Medical Center - Adventist HealthCare
Shady Grove is a 443-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 stroke care, women’s and children’s services, cancer care and surgical services including joint replacement and bariatrics. Our emergency room is among Maryland's busiest and includes pediatric and psychiatric units. We are home to robust maternity services and a level III neonatal intensive care unit. We also provide inpatient and outpatient mental health care for children and adults. As a Primary Stroke Center, we offer neurosurgical and neuroendovascular interventions.
Our pharmacy has academic affiliations with University of Maryland, Howard University and Shenandoah University School of Pharmacy. We utilize a decentralized model, with pharmacists in different units of the hospital participating in interdisciplinary rounds, patient care and education for patients and healthc...are team members. Pharmacists act as champions of safe medication practices and lead or serve on numerous interdisciplinary committees through the Adventist HealthCare system. Through collaborative practice, our pharmacists are responsible for warfarin and other anticoagulant dosing and monitoring, renal dosing, TPN formulation, IV to PO, liquid to solid formulation changes, pharmacokinetic services, code blue response and antimicrobial stewardship.
