Meeting a continuum of health and wellness care
Meeting the health and wellness care needs of people who live and work in Montgomery County is a factor in our high ‘livability’ quotient. Access to high quality healthcare is vital, and the county is home to some of the best hospitals and health care centers in the Washington, D.C. region, and in fact across the nation. Integrated health care services run the gamut from nationally accredited hospitals to home health agencies and walk-in clinics. In this era of health care reform, our area hospitals and health systems are providing high quality care and also encouraging people to stay healthy.
