BALTIMORE — Gilchrist is building a new 30,000 square-foot hospice center, at the site of the old Memorial Stadium on E. 33rd Street in North Baltimore.
The facility will contain 18 private adult and four pediatric suites for inpatient residential hospice and respite care.
The company's current hospice center is located at the former Joseph Richey House on Eutaw Street.
Gilchrist remains the only residential hospice center in Baltimore and will house the only pediatric inpatient hospice unit in the entire state.
Hospice services at Gilchrist will be available to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay.
The rest of the site is already home to 30 acres that provides housing and long-term care to over 500 low- to mid-income Baltimore City seniors.
The project is set to be completed by 2021. Gilchrist has reached 70 percent of its $15.3 million fundraising goal for construction and capital costs for the center, including a $1 million commitment from the State of Maryland.
