RadioOnFire.com – Following its November takeover by LifeBridge Health, Bon Secours Baltimore Hospital is set to get a new name.
LifeBridge officials announced Tuesday the West Baltimore’s hospital’s new name will be Grace Medical Center.
“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,” LifeBridge president and CEO Neil Meltzer said in a statement. “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.”
The hospital was founded in 1919 by the Sisters of Bon Secours, who continue their mission through Bon Secours Community Works, whom LifeBridge agreed to support over the next six years as a condition of the hospital’s acquisition.
LifeBridge plans to expand the hospital’s emergency service, on-site care and specialty services, and add a small medical and surgical unit. Renovations are expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
