About Capital Caring Adler Center

Since 1977, Capital Caring has simply improved care for those facing life-limiting illness through direct support of patients and their families, public education and advocacy. Founder, Dr. Josefina Magno, was a pioneer in the 1970’s. She understood that people living with serious illnesses needed substantial and sustained care.

As a result of this innovation, Capital Caring has over the years provided hospice, palliative care, and counseling to nearly 120,000 patients and their families. What began as a small team in a single office and has expanded to a regional network that encompasses multiple neighborhood offices across Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Almost 800 employees and 1,000 volunteers provide these services to nearly 1,200 patients each day.  As one of the nation’s oldest and largest non-profit providers of hospice and palliative care, Capital Caring is proud to provide nearly $3 million in charitable care to families in need annually.
