Washington D.C. (Metro) Medical Billing, Credentialing
Medwave is pleased to offer our medical billing and credentialing services to healthcare professionals in the City of Washington, D.C. and surrounding communities.
Washington D.C. is a national center for patient care and medical research. There is currently a total of 16 medical centers located in the District of Columbia, with numerous other medical research centers in the DC area, most recently the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD.
Washington Hospital Center is the largest hospital campus in the District and is both the largest private and the largest non-profit hospital in the metropolitan area. Immediately adjacent to the Center is the National Rehabilitation Hospital and Children’s National Medical Center. Children’s is among the highest ranked pediatric hospitals in the nation and also provides care at 23 regional outpatient centers through the region.
Another prominent area hospital is the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. The 550-bed hospital provided care for active-duty and retired personnel and their dependents from all branches of the armed forces until 2011. Under the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Act, Walter Reed Hospital combined with the National Naval Medical Center at Bethesda, Maryland in 2011 to form the tri-service Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC). The grounds and historic buildings of the old campus are being redeveloped as the Parks at Walter Reed.
Three universities in Washington have medical schools and associated teaching hospitals. The George Washington University Medical Center, the Georgetown University Hospital, home to the Lombardi Cancer Center and Howard University Hospital, the only hospital in the nation on the campus of a historically black university.
Of course, as the nation’s capital, Washington is home to a number of national museums dedicated to the medical profession. As an example, the National Library of Medicine houses the largest collection of print and non-print materials in the history of the health sciences in the United States. Others in the region include the National Museum of Health and Medicine, the Clara Barton National Historical Site and the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.
Managing the overall administration and reimbursement for all these medical facilities and practitioners is definitely not an easy task.
That’s why Medwave offers its expertise in medical billing and credentialing to a wide range of healthcare professionals in the D.C. Metro area.
