Take a tour of Gilchrist Center.

Gilchrist Center is our 34-bed inpatient facility in Towson, Maryland. The center’s dedicated staff provides expert care for terminally ill individuals in a homelike environment that is welcoming, supportive and comfortable for both patients and their loved ones.

As a general guideline, patients are admitted to Gilchrist Center when symptoms of their disease – pain, dementia, delirium, breathlessness, and other conditions – require more intensive medical interventions than can usually be provided at home.

Some special features of Gilchrist Center include:

• Quality, personalized care that addresses the unique and changing physical, spiritual and emotional needs of patients and families.

• Round-the-clock staffing by a full range of experienced, caring medical professionals including physicians as well as registered nurses and nursing assistants who specialize in hospice care.

• Private rooms.

• Accommodations for family members who wish to remain overnight.

• Many homelike features including a children’s play room, large great room, family kitchen and lounges, beautiful gardens and walkways and more.
