What:

Grace Medical Center, formerly Bon Secours Hospital, is hosting a renovation celebration and demolition event to mark the transition to the next phase of renovations for the West Baltimore medical facility and its campus.

During the event, a large artifact from the original hospital will be presented to the Sisters of Bon Secours, followed by a ceremonial demolition and the unveiling of a rendering of a new 20,000 square foot outpatient behavioral health facility, which will have services for both adults and children.


When:


Monday, March 7, 2022 (10 a.m.)


Where:


Grace Medical Center - (old Emergency Department Entrance)
2000 block of West Fayette Street
(near the corner of West Fayette and Pulaski streets, street parking)


Why:



Since the acquisition by LifeBridge Health in November 2019, Grace Medical Center has been transformed with a full facility renovation, including a new state-of-the-art emergency department, operating rooms, primary and specialty care clinics and more. These renovations cleared the way for this next phase: the demolition of the original Bon Secours Hospital and connecting buildings in preparation of the construction of a new two-story outpatient behavioral health facility and green space, projected to be completed by the end of 2023.

These improvements to Grace Medical Center show LifeBridge Health’s ongoing commitment to creating a healthier West Baltimore and providing the community with quality and compassionate healthcare services. LifeBridge Health estimates an $85 million investment for the full three-year transformation project, including bringing in additional medical specialties such as pediatrics, gynecology and ophthalmology, which are now available to the people of West Baltimore.
