Letter from City Council and WAH President Regarding Aquatics Center

The City Council and Erik Wangsness, President of Washington Adventist Hospital, with support and signatures from Dr. Weymouth Spence, President of Washington Adventist University, and Dr. Brad Stewart, Vice-President and Provost of Montgomery College’s Takoma Park-Silver Spring Campus, sent a letter to County Executive Isiah Leggett requesting an evaluation of construction of a Montgomery County Department of Recreation aquatics center on the Takoma Park campus of the Washington Adventist Hospital.

As Washington Adventist Hospital prepares to move its main hospital to White Oak, the City of Takoma Park and hospital leaders are looking at the current site for uses that complement the health services that will remain and, also importantly, improve the overall health and wellbeing of the community. An aquatics center would be an asset to both the hospital and the community.
