Request Number 1:
$10 million in initial funding to support our plan to expand inpatient care capacity and improve the patient and family experience by replacing our 60-plus-year-old hospital with a state-of-the-art Innovative Care Center on our East Baltimore Campus.
Maryland's Children and Teens Need Our Help
Our current inpatient hospital at 707 North Broadway in East Baltimore has been renovated several times to adjust to increased demands for our services. Built in 1964, its infrastructure is suboptimal for the complex patient care that Kennedy Krieger needs to deliver—today and in the future. Our plan is to build a new Innovative Care Center adjacent to our 707 North Broadway building and renovate the latter building to accommodate more research space via adaptive reuse. By building the new space and renovating the existing one, we will increase the number of people we employ from East Baltimore, Maryland and beyond. We are committed to our East Baltimore community and to helping it grow and thrive.
Request Number 2:
$2.5 million in continued funding for the expansion of Kennedy Krieger’s LEAP special education school and programs.
