Adolescent Healthcare at Mary Washington Hospital
Over 100 Years of Excellence in Virginia Medical Care
Adolescence is described as the time of life following the beginning of
puberty into maturity. By definition, adolescence is a time of change,
growth, and new experiences. This phase of life “bridges the gap”
between childhood and adulthood. Our team at Mary Washington Healthcare
offers a variety of services for our adolescent patients. You can learn
more about our medical care and health education initiatives for teens

For many, the adolescent “in between” years are an exciting
time full of new opportunities, discoveries, friendships, and memories
that last a lifetime. As with any other period of transition and change,
however, these years can also be difficult and sometimes a little overwhelming.
New challenges—from facing increased negative peer pressure to navigating
conflicting media messages to learning to drive a car—can present
unique dangers. Many physical changes that occur during this time are
normal, but it’s important to know what to expect and what is cause
for concern or medical attention. Additionally, this is a critical time
of life in which to begin developing healthy lifestyle habits and learning
to make the right choices for mind, body, and soul.
At Mary Washington Healthcare, we strive to partner with teenagers and
parents in health and wellness education and initiatives. We are dedicated
to serving our community with advanced care and ensuring that our patients
have access to the best care at every age and stage of life. Mary Washington
Healthcare has been serving Virginia communities for over 100 years. We
emphasize communication and consistency, and work to go above and beyond
for our patients. Despite our growth, we are still your community hospital,
committed to providing some of the nation’s best care right in your
backyard. Contact us at any time for more information about the many services
and programs we offer for adolescents.
