  1. Chase Brexton is a Johns Hopkins Medical institution that was built on taxpayer money to help the underserved that now seems to be expanding into areas all being or soon to be affluent. It is very much like the Hopkins movement into the boutique health care field and the global marketing to the world’s wealthy ‘health tourists’.

    Now, one might say that trillions of taxpayer research money and entitlement money built Johns Hopkins Medical Campus so, when do we stop thinking of Hopkins as a non-profit and start getting all that public investment back?

  2. Chase Brexton Health Services is not a part of the Johns Hopkins medical institution or college and was founded in the Mt. Vernon community in 1978.

    Serving more than 24,000 patients annually, Chase Brexton is a private, non-profit, Joint Commission accredited, Federally Qualified Health Center (a community health center) providing care to people of every age, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and socioeconomic status. It serves uninsured and insured individuals alike and provides care that many would not be able to access. Many of its patients would be denied care because of their insurance status – a precarious way to live. Maryland communities are healthier because of community health care institutions like Chase Brexton.

    Chase Brexton provides a range of clinical services from primary medical care to behavioral health services to pharmacy to case management, among others. It currently operate five centers located in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Howard County, and Talbot County.

  3. Where did you pull that lie from? Chase Brexton is NOT affiliated with Hopkins. It’s basically a free clinic serving mostly the gay, bi, lesbian, trans, and hiv+ community. This is a legitimate sliding scale clinic that accepts government medicare/caid insurance and MD pac… Hopkins doesn’t do any of that to my knowledge. Don’t talk about it if you know nothing of it.
