“As we thought about a new name for the hospital, we wanted to honor the hospital’s 100-year history as well as reflect our ongoing commitment to ensuring that the people of West Baltimore have health services they need now and in the future. After consulting with many people, including staff, community members and the Sisters of Bon Secours, it was the spirit of the employees themselves, along with a desire to recognize and thank the Sisters of Bon Secours, that led us to the name Grace Medical Center,” says Neil Meltzer, LifeBridge Health president and CEO.
