Bikur Cholim of Baltimore, a volunteer based organization, is dedicated to identifying, anticipating and addressing the needs of Jewish patients and their families confronting a myriad of medical challenges both in the hospital and at home.
Bikur Cholim of Baltimore was started in 1985 by a group of dedicated volunteers to serve the needs of people facing illness in the Jewish community. Since then, Bikur Cholim of Baltimore has been providing support services to countless individuals and families from the Baltimore community, as well as people coming from all over the world to Baltimore to receive medical care from our world-class medical institutions.
Bikur Cholim of Baltimore’s vision is to channel the chesed of our community to support patients and their families from near and far.
We lighten their burden by providing food, transportation, visitation, respite, kosher hospitality rooms in area hospitals, a dedicated apartment for out-of-town cholim, free-loan medical equipment and other services.
It is our belief that patients should be able to focus on getting better, being assured that the community is there to assist in any way possible.
