Staff members at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center are devoted to southeast Baltimore and continually strive to earn their place as an integral part of the community. Among our offerings are public outreach programs, health seminars and screenings, many of which are free.
In these uncertain times, patients and hospitals are relying on the generosity of blood donors to ensure a stable supply of blood for the most vulnerable among us. Healthy individuals are needed to donate now to help patients counting on lifesaving blood.
Donating blood is a safe process and you should not hesitate to give or receive blood. The American Red Cross is abiding by social distancing standards and is setting up their drives to have as much distance as possible between donors.

Collaborating with the Community and Baltimore City to Make Returning to Worship Safer
After streaming religious services online for a year, Baltimore faith leaders want to know what COVID-19 protocols to follow during in-person services. This inspired a collaboration among houses of worship, Baltimore City and Johns Hopkins to help advise religious leaders about how to safely return to on-site worship. The medical-religious partnership began a pilot program phase July 21 at the Muslim Community Cultural Center and at Israel Baptist Church, which is just northeast of The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
