generated through providing patient and other health care services.
Opened in 1958, Washington Hospital Healthcare System has grown to
include a 341-bed, acute-care hospital; the Taylor McAdam Bell
Neuroscience Institute; The Gamma Knife® Center; Washington Radiation
Oncology Center; Washington Outpatient Surgery Center; Washington
Outpatient Rehabilitation Center; Washington Institute for Joint
Restoration and Research; Washington Township Medical Foundation; and
Washington West, a complex which houses Washington Women’s Center,
