Gilchrist Hospice Care:
Since its founding in 1994, Gilchrist Hospice Care has led the way in providing personal attention and compassionate end-of-life care in the home, in the nursing home or assisted living facility in which patients reside or at Gilchrist's renowned inpatient center. It is Gilchrist's goal to help patients approach the end of life in comfort and with dignity, surrounded by loved ones in the place that provides them the most solace.
Greater Baltimore Health Alliance (GBHA):
GBHA is the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) that consists of GBMC (the Hospital), its employed physicians in GBMA, aligned providers in community-based practice and Gilchrist Hospice Care. It was developed by GBMC to offer a system of care using employed and private practice doctors who are connected by an electronic health record (EHR) that manages patients' needs across many physician locations.
Founded in 1987, the GBMC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established to centralize and coordinate fundraising efforts to benefit GBMC. The Foundation executes fundraising events, annual appeals and capital campaigns and seeks gifts from grateful patients and other friends of GBMC, as well as grants from corporations and private foundations.
