Baltimore’s burgeoning Latino community arrives on the scene

Shortly after Carina Garcia, a native of Mexico, arrived in Baltimore, she became pregnant with her second child. Uncertain of where to turn, she asked acquaintances for advice. They all suggested Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Carina had spotted the hospital’s free mobile clinic, Care-A-Van, at Centro de la Comunidad, the Hispanic community center on Eastern Avenue, so she had a good feeling about Bayview. Before long, she was receiving prenatal care there.
