Community Outreach Program
Fort Washington Medical Center ‘s Community Outreach program is based
on our commitment to provide our community access to quality care and
preventive services to enhance the overall wellness of the communities
we serve. Through community outreach, FWMC seeks to establish meaningful
partnerships with faith-based groups, community-based organizations, educational
institutions, businesses, legislative and appointed officials, and other
groups to promote wellness and a healthier lifestyle for all community
Some of Our Community Outreach Initiatives
Community Outreach Initiatives
FWMC connects with the community by participating in events of mutual interest
to the hospital and patient population. We hold memberships within various
healthcare-related organizations, including the Maryland Hospital Association
and the American Hospital Association. We also serve on key committees,
such as the Prince George’s County Healthcare Coalition, the Prince
George’s Chamber of Commerce and other organizations to contribute
to the health and well-being of our neighbors. The hospital maintains
a direct link to the community through its Community Outreach program.
FWMC participates in many local health fairs each year. Upon request from
churches, schools, businesses, and other community organizations, the
hospital provides free clinical screenings, distributes health literature,
offers health education and makes referrals to our services and programs,
such as our Diabetes Self-Management and Education Program. If you would
like FWMC to participate in your health fair, call 301-686-9010 (ext. 100).
FWMC Community Walking & Education Program
At FWMC, we are only as healthy as our neighboring communities. That is
why we partner with the Prince George’s Parks & Recreation’s
Southern Regional Technology and Recreation Complex and LG Total Fitness,
to offer a walking program. Participants walk independently throughout
the week and meet up at the complex on Saturday mornings to walk together.
We also hold periodic health education classes to address various medical
topics to keep participants informed and healthy. To learn more about
the Community Walking & Education Program, call 301-686-9010.
