Pediatric hospice program provides end-of-life care for young patients

Gilchrist Kids

Gilchrist Kids is a pediatric hospice program that provides compassionate and comprehensive end-of-life care for infants, children and young adults with life-limiting illnesses. The program also provides perinatal support for parents-to-be who have learned that their unborn child may have an incurable illness. You can find more information in our Gilchrist Kids booklet.

Gilchrist Kids staff and families have been featured on several internet and television programs in 2018. In March, team members and one parent whose child received pediatric hospice care through Gilchrist Kids, were invited by Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC) to be interviewed on their “To Your Health” and “Greater Living” Facebook Live segments. More recently, in November 2018, a Gilchrist Kids hospice aide and patient’s mother are featured on WMAR-TV in Baltimore.
