MedStar Montgomery Medical Center is located in Olney, Maryland, in the north-eastern corner of Montgomery County. We have been a cornerstone of the community, with a long and rich history dedicated to serving the citizens of Montgomery and surrounding counties.
We were founded in 1918 by Jacob Wheeler Bird, MD and became a member of MedStar Health, the region's largest non-profit and most trusted integrated healthcare delivery system, in 2008. The original hospital had 28 beds and was the first acute care hospital in Montgomery County.
We are also proud of our Board and volunteers, who help us to partner with generous donors to fund important initiatives to meet the health care needs of the community; our Community Health division which assists patients when they go home from the hospital with in-home healthcare needs; and the Women’s Board, which was originally the "Ladies' Auxiliary" established in 1919 to raise funds for the hospital, scholarships, and more.
MedStar Montgomery Medical Center is a Joint Commission certified Primary Stroke Center, a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, has received the Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award from the American Heart/American Stroke Association, as well as a three-time recipient of the Partner for Change Award for our sustainability efforts, as well as receiving the Partner For Change Award with Distinction.
We are proud to serve our community, and while our neighbors think of us as a place for medical treatment, we like to view ourselves as a community health resource. From our health and wellness classes to our community lectures to the free screenings and blood pressure checks we offer throughout the year, MedStar Montgomery Medical Center is here for you not just in sickness, but also in health.
