Whether individuals come to us as inpatients, outpatients or students, the staff at Kennedy Kennedy Institute understand that the individuals and families we serve often need considerable support, guidance and assistance.

The Institute also recognizes that managing medical care for yourself or a loved one can be a huge responsibility.

That's why Kennedy Krieger strives to provide our patients, students and families with the tools and support services that are vital to their success.

Through our Patient Experience and Community Engagement department, our Resource Finder, the Maryland Center for Developmental Disabilities, our International Care Management Office and multiple other programs and services, Kennedy Krieger is determined to do all that it can to ensure that the individuals who trust us with their care have all that they need during their time here.

Our Culture of Care:

Kennedy Krieger Institute recognizes and respects the rights of employees, trainees, and patients and students, and their families. At Kennedy Krieger, we ground our care, services, training and research in treating others with respect and civility. We respect the cultural identity of every person.

Kennedy Krieger Institute does not discriminate against people based on, but not limited to, perceived or actual race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, language spoken, accent, marital status, veteran or military status, immigration status, disability, religion, pregnancy status, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.

We strive for equitable care for all individuals for whom we provide services, training, education and research participation. We encourage employees, trainees, and patients and students, and their families, to become active partners in the services provided by asking questions, seeking resources and advocating for their needs.
