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.
