MedStar Ambulatory Medicine

I want to make sure all of our associates are aware that MedStar Health is rapidly expanding its outpatient clinics--from MedStar PromptCare (network of walk-in clinics) to more MedStar Physicians' offices to very large MedStar Medical Centers (70,000 square feet multi-specialty clinics). It's all part of MedStar's commitment to provide easier access to our community with a focus on you.

Here are two examples:

Last week was the ribbon cutting ceremony at MedStar Health at Leisure World Boulevard. As you may recall from a prior blog posting (Post on Leisure World), Leisure World is a community of 8,500 retired residents in Montgomery County. MedStar just opened a medical office on the property to serve the needs of these residents. In this picture, Dr. Burt Feldman, medical director of this new medical office, welcomes everyone as Bob Gilbert, president of MedStar Ambulatory Services looks on. It was a wonderful open-house event that showed off the medical services this new office will provide.

Also this week, MedStar will begin to advertise some of the new MedStar PromptCare facilities, such as the one in Wheaton, MD. I love the ad campaign. It says 'when you need a doctor, not an appointment' (see ad above). To learn more, go to A few  newspapers have also covered the expansion of new ambulatory sites.
