Health & Safety

Kennedy Krieger maintains a safe environment with security officers stationed throughout our Broadway, Fairmount, and Greenspring campuses. To contact a security officer, call 443-923-9111.

Upon entering the Institute, all patients and families must sign in at the front desk and obtain a visitor’s wristband or sticker, which they should wear at all times. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Security officers reserve the right to examine articles brought into and removed from our facilities. We offer 24-hour security assistance. Safety escorts can guide patients and families between locations and to parking lots.

For the health and well-being of our patients and visitors, hand sanitizer dispensers are located throughout the Institute. Patients are screened for fever or flu-like symptoms upon arrival. Please understand that if your child is sick, your appointment may be rescheduled. For the health of our patients and staff, tobacco use of any kind is not permitted anywhere inside or on the grounds of Kennedy Krieger Institute.
