MedStar Health's newest healthcare facility opens in Brandywine

MedStar Health opened its newest healthcare facility July 19 in Brandywine, Md.

The community-based healthcare center, at 13950 Brandywine Road, will serve Prince George's and Charles counties. The state-of-the-art, 60,000-square-foot facility brings medical specialists from MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, MedStar Washington Hospital Center and MedStar National Rehabilitation Network to one convenient location, along with primary care, radiology and laboratory services. MedStar Health at Brandywine also features a meeting room that can be used by community groups and organizations.

The Brandywine location offers high-quality patient care in a number of specialties, including cardiology, orthopaedics, otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), physiatry, primary care, rehabilitation, and rheumatology. Laboratory and radiology services are offered on site, along with free parking and Wi-Fi.

Brandywine is the fifth ambulatory care center opened by MedStar in the past four years and the second in Prince George's County.

"It's all part of the continued investment by MedStar into this area," said Bob Gilbert, president of MedStar Health Ambulatory Services.

MedStar hosted a grand opening celebration for the facility on July 14. Maryland Senate President Thomas V. "Mike" Miller spoke during the event, along with Gilbert, Eric R. Wagner, MedStar's executive vice president of Insurance and Diversified Operations, and Dennis Carlini, MD, a MedStar orthopaedist.

The facility soon will include a same-day surgery center and an infusion center.
