Directions to Gilchrist Center Howard County.
As of Monday, May 23, 2011, Gilchrist began offering acute inpatient hospice care in two locations, at Gilchrist Center and at our new 10-bed unit, Gilchrist Center Howard County.
Located within Harmony Hall Assisted Living in the Howard County Health Park, the new unit is just as warm, just as home-like and just as care-driven as Gilchrist Center, our renowned inpatient facility in Towson and the icon of our nationally-recognized program. The rooms have been designed with the same look and feel as at Gilchrist Center, and the unit includes similar common areas – a chapel, family rooms – for loved ones to gather and to collect their thoughts, emotionally and spiritually.
While this unit is not a stand-alone hospice facility, it has its own entrance, its own landscaping and its own identity. Like all Gilchrist services, Gilchrist Howard County will adhere to the highest standards of care, dedicated and devoted to ensuring that terminally-ill patients are able to approach the end of life in comfort and with dignity, surrounded by those they love.
Gilchrist is currently in the midst of a $2.5 million fund-raising campaign to help defray the one-time construction costs of the unit, as well as the ongoing operating costs; the cost of providing quality, specialized inpatient care traditionally exceed insurance reimbursements.
