White Oak, MD — The healthcare sector is expected to add the most jobs in the U.S. over the next several years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Adventist HealthCare brings this economic and job growth to the Washington, D.C. region as it begins a $331 million project to build the new Adventist HealthCare Washington Adventist Hospital in the White Oak area of Montgomery County.
More than 300 community members and elected officials gathered today to celebrate the groundbreaking of the new hospital.
Adjacent to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) headquarters, the new hospital is at the center of the White Oak Science Gateway, a developing life sciences community bringing together medical researchers, businesses and retailers—projected to contribute $5 billion to the state’s economy.
The hospital will create nearly 7,500 jobs between construction and hospital operations, according to an analysis by Stephen Fuller, PhD, director for the Center for Regional Analysis at George Mason University. READ MORE
