MedStar Washington Hospital Center

MedStar Washington Hospital Center can provide a medical forensic exam for victims of sexual assault and dating or intimate partner violence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The exam is tailored to what the victim wants, but can include evidence collection, comprehensive medical examination, preventive medications, and referrals to longer term resources. You may choose to report the incident and speak to the police while you are there, but you do not have to talk to the police or anyone else until you are ready. Your evidence can be collected and stored anonymously until you decide whether to report (up to 90 days).

Call 1-800-641-4028 to get a free Uber Cab ride to the hospital and dispatch a confidential advocate to meet you at the hospital.
