Gilchrist Center Baltimore

Gilchrist Center Baltimore is nearing completion of a $15 million fundraising campaign to relocate operations to Stadium Place on E. 33rd Street, a GEDCO development. This new state-of-the-art inpatient hospice facility at the former site of Memorial Stadium will remain a vital resource for terminally ill Baltimore City residents.

Our Mission and Our Impact

Gilchrist Center Baltimore’s vision is bold: caring for the most underprivileged and underserved patients at the end of life, ensuring they have access to safe, compassionate care, regardless of background or ability to pay. And that mission on Eutaw Street has helped countless individuals die with dignity. But after 30 years operating out of several 130-year-old deteriorating rowhouses that require ongoing maintenance and financial resources, it was time for a change.

Gilchrist Center Baltimore launched a $15 million fundraising campaign to relocate operations to Stadium Place on E. 33rd Street, a GEDCO development. This new state-of-the-art inpatient hospice facility at the former site of Memorial Stadium will remain a vital resource for terminally ill Baltimore City residents.

Ground has broken and construction is well underway. Once completed, the new Gilchrist Center Baltimore will be a 30,000-square-foot building situated on 1.5 acres, providing 18 adult and 4 pediatric private rooms for inpatient residential hospice and respite care.

The Need

In Baltimore City, those aged 65+ comprise approximately 12.1% of the total population, and the Maryland Health Care Commission projects an increase in city residents needing hospice. With 30% of families living in poverty, Baltimore City has significant socio-economic challenges that lead to health disparities.

Without Gilchrist Center Baltimore, many of the city’s terminally ill would die in emergency rooms or alone on city streets.

The Future

Gilchrist Center Baltimore’s new facility will provide a beacon of hope and solace for Baltimore City residents, and an added investment and benefit to its communities. Its new beginning means for years to come, the terminally ill in Baltimore – many of whom have been medically and socially underserved – will spend their final days in a beautiful setting where they will be cared for compassionately and respectfully.
