Johns Hopkins Medicine's commitment to our communities
Community Connections and Perspectives
Since its inception, Johns Hopkins has focused on helping not only our patients but also people in our communities. This idea is central to our institution. In this issue, we share some powerful stories that exemplify this spirit of sharing.
Access Partnership Celebrates a Decade of Providing Low-Cost Services — and Hope
Uninsured and underinsured patients in East Baltimore — many of whom live near The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center — have access to medical treatment from our specialists through the Access Partnership. Marking its 10th anniversary this year, the Johns Hopkins charitable care program has served more than 7,411 patients and provided 15,636 referrals to Johns Hopkins for specialty care.
Fighting Food Insecurity
This summer, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital served more than 2,000 meals at no charge to children in the community in an effort to help ensure they continued to receive nutritious meals while school was not in session.
Cancer Care for Underserved Patients in D.C.
In collaboration with Unity Health Care, Sibley Memorial Hospital has established a cancer clinic at the Parkside Health Center in Washington, D.C. The specialty services offered through this collaboration will provide much needed cancer care to underserved patients in wards 7 and 8 and throughout Washington.
A Smoke-Free Community
While tobacco use has declined in recent decades, it remains the leading cause of preventable death, disability and disease in the United States. To help people find their path to a smoke-free life, Suburban Hospital offers the American Lung Association’s Freedom from Smoking course at no charge at locations throughout Montgomery County.
Treating Addiction Without Judgment
The summer of 2019 marked the silver anniversary of the Comprehensive Care Practice at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center — a primary-care clinic that places special emphasis on substance use. The practice was founded by Michael Fingerhood at a time when many Baltimoreans struggling with addiction had few options for health care.
Giving Throughout the Year
Giving back to the local community is part of the global mission of Johns Hopkins Medicine International, which makes an impact in the community throughout the year, largely through the activities of its Employee Engagement Committee.
