About Us

Welcome to Fort Washington Medical Center

Fort Washington Medical Center (FWMC) is a 37-bed acute care hospital dedicated to serving the local community. It is owned by Nexus Health, a private healthcare organization that manages our acute-care hospital.

FWMC is the youngest hospital in the Maryland healthcare system. The hospital sees nearly 43,000 patients through its emergency room each year. It is not unusual to find long-standing physicians and staff who have worked at the facility since its inception still serving patients in a skillful and compassionate manner. FWMC employs more than 400 staff, many of whom reside in Maryland.

Patients from Fort Washington, Oxon Hill, Temple Hills, Accokeek, and surrounding areas come to the hospital for reliable, quality medical care.

Hear it from Our Patients

Jody Beard has suffered from knee pain for many years. Not anymore, thanks to knee replacement surgery through the Fort Washington Medical Center Joint Replacement Program.
This surgery has changed my life. I no longer lay on shopping carts for support or agonize when walking on concrete. After two knee replacements, now I am all over the place. I’m walking around the school where I work without pain. My granddaughter says I don’t walk like a penguin anymore. I have my surgeon and the FWMC staff to thank for that!
