Workday and Adventist HealthCare

Adventist HealthCare, founded in 1907, is the first, largest, and only health system headquartered in Montgomery County, Maryland. It operates two nationally accredited acute-care hospitals, a nationally accredited rehabilitation hospital, mental health services, home health agencies, physician networks, urgent care centers, and imaging centers, spanning approximately 700 beds.

Our big strategic driver in selecting Workday was that we wanted a product that we could go all in on with human capital management, finance, and supply chain.
