The William L. and Victorine Q. Adams Gilchrist Center Baltimore (GCB) opened its doors to patients and families in December 2021 on E. 33rd Street at the former site of Memorial Stadium. The 22-bed center relocated from its original home on Eutaw Street and remains Baltimore City’s only residential inpatient hospice center. Charitable contributions ensure that every patient is cared for regardless of their ability to pay.
Like Memorial Stadium, GCB too, has an illustrious history. The center was originally founded as The Joseph Richey House (JHR) in two 1886 rowhomes on North Eutaw Street in 1987 by the Mount Calvary Church and the All Saints Sisters of the Poor. JHR was the first hospice in Baltimore and the first residential hospice in Maryland. Due to continued financial struggles, the organization joined forces with Gilchrist in 2014. Renamed Gilchrist Center Baltimore, the center continued its legacy of providing compassionate, end-of-life care to Baltimore City’s most at-risk and medically underserved populations. In 2017 a capital campaign began to relocate the city-based center to Stadium Place, the former home of Memorial Stadium on E. 33rd Street.
Since 1994, Gilchrist has provided compassionate serious illness and end of life care to nearly 26,000 patients and families annually throughout Central Maryland. Patients are cared for in their homes and residential care facilities, as well as at Gilchrist Center Towson, which opened in 1996, at Gilchrist Center Howard County, which opened in 2011, and at the William L. and Victorine Q. Adams Gilchrist Center Baltimore, formerly the Joseph Richey House, since 2014. In addition, Gilchrist began offering Pediatric hospice care through its Gilchrist Kids program in 2010.
