MedStar Washington Hospital Center associates personally make a difference in the lives of our patients thousands of times each day. Whether saving a life or extending an extra moment of compassion to someone in distress, these moments mean the world to our patients. These associates have something deep inside that makes them special. Please take a few moments to listen to them tell their stories of compassion, quick thinking and heart. You will hear a theme: "I was just doing my job." But our patients know it was much more than that.
