Bon Secours Hospital is a hospital in Baltimore. The hospital has the largest renal dialysis center in the city of Baltimore. The name Bon Secours is French for "good help."[1] The hospital is part of the Marriottsville, Maryland-based Bon Secours Health System, a $2.9 billion not-for-profit Catholic health system that owns, manages, or joint ventures 18 acute-care hospitals, one psychiatric hospital, five nursing care facilities, four assisted living facilities and 14 home care and hospice programs in seven states.

History[edit]

In 1881, Cardinal James Gibbons asked for the Sisters of Bon Secours to come from Paris to provide health care.

In 1919, George Jenkins[disambiguation needed], a philanthropist, provided funds to open a hospital[2] In 1996, the hospital merged with Liberty Medical Center, which closed at the time.

In 2009, the hospital considered closing its inpatient services to cut costs.[3]
