Event description
See how a model of treatment started in 1881 has revolutionized care in west Baltimore for more than 100 years.

About this Event

Bon Secours’ history begins with three young nurses who traveled from France in 1881 with a mission: to care for the sick and dying in Baltimore. Their model of care was notably different. It addressed not just the patients’ needs, but those of his or her family and the community. It represents the earliest version of “population healthcare,” introduced well before the hospital was constructed.

Today we provide many of the same services outside the hospital’s walls. Here are just a few:

  • 800+ affordable apartments
  • Job skills & employment
  • Fresh produce in a food desert

...And we do so much more. For more than 100 years, Bon Secours has ministered to the people of west Baltimore. We are proud not only of that legacy, but of a heritage that began well before then.

FAQ

Do I need to print my ticket?

  • Not at all. Your registration is all that's needed.

Is there walking involved?

  • Minimal. The tour convenes at one of our low-income facilities and then we board a van to take a guided tour of the neighborhood. The tour ends at Community Works so you can learn first-hand about the programs we offer to our neighbors free of charge. Here also lunch will be provided. Then we return you to the original location to get your car.

How long is this event?

  • We meet at 11:45AM and are usually finished by 1:00PM.

What will this cost me?

  • Only your time. We do not ask for donations but will add you to our mail/email list to keep you up to date on what's happening at Bon Secours Baltimore. You are free to opt out of any communication.
