Lanham, MD – Doctors Community Hospital held its 21st annual golf invitational on May 16 in Queenstown, Maryland, a fundraiser which generated $170,640. The funds raised will help the hospital acquire new medical technology and provide community health programs. With a focus on assisting underserved, uninsured and underinsured Prince George’s County residents, these community health programs promote disease prevention and health improvement.  

Doctors Community Hospital Foundation organized the golf invitational. All tax-deductible donations funded new hospital equipment as well as community outreach programs that provide free health services and education. One such program is the Wellness on Wheels (W.O.W.) mobile health clinic.

A collaboration between the Prince George’s County Health Department and Doctors Community Hospital, W.O.W. travels to various locations throughout the county and provides free health services to people ages 18 and older. Some of its services include diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure screenings. Additionally, medication reviews and education are offered.

“We are honored by the outpouring of support from local residents, businesses and organizations that share the hospital’s dedication to serving this great community,” said Robyn Webb-Williams, vice president, Doctors Community Hospital Foundation.

“Their thoughtful donations will help Doctors Community Hospital provide more area residents with life-saving preventative health screenings and education – regardless of their ability to pay. From free diabetes screenings to financial assistance for those who need rehabilitation services after having a heart attack, we will continue to help people maintain or improve their health.” 

Webb-Williams mentioned that the next fundraising event will be the “A Better Me” fashion show on September 15 at the Oxon Hill Manor.  It will feature breast cancer survivors who will model various fashions as well as share their stories of strength and hope. All funds will support Doctors Community Hospital’s free mammogram and breast care programs. Another event will be its annual gala on November 12 at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner in McLean, Virginia.
