Gilchrist, Maryland’s largest provider of serious illness and end-of-life care, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Sept. 30 at its new hospice center in Baltimore.
The William L. and Victorine Q. Adams Gilchrist Center Baltimore, named after two African-American pillars of the local community, is a 30,000 square-foot facility on 1 1/2 acres at Stadium Place on East 33rd Street, where Memorial Stadium was once located.
The facility is the new location for Gilchrist’s current inpatient hospice center previously located on Eutaw Street — it was at the former Joseph Richey House — which provided end-of-life care for city residents for more than 30 years.
The new two-story center, which contains 18 private adult and four pediatric suites for inpatient residential hospice and respite care, will continue to be the only residential hospice center in Baltimore and house the only pediatric inpatient hospice unit in Maryland. Gilchrist will begin accepting patients in late October or early November.
