Erin Batton, RN - Gilchrist Hospice Care Pediatrics

"I have come across the best nurses I have ever encountered while at Gilchrist. Their level of expertise, care and compassion is unmatched. These are the best nurses I've ever worked with and I'm completely honored to be part of Gilchrist and GBMC."

Sherry Pearson, RN - Labor and Delivery

"I started at GBMC as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) while I was in nursing school. Now I am back in school pursuing a Master’s to become a Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner (CRNP). I’ve taken advantage of GBMC’s tuition reimbursement benefit and maintained a 4.0 throughout my education."

"My department is like family."


The mission of GBMC is to provide medical care and service of the highest quality to each patient leading to health, healing and hope.


As our national healthcare system evolves, for GBMC to maintain its status as a provider of the highest quality medical care to our community, we must transform our philosophy and organizational structure, and develop a model system for delivering patient-centered care.

We define patient-centered care as care that manages the patient's health effectively and efficiently while respecting the perspective and experience of the patient and the patient's family. Continuity of care and ease of navigation through a full array of services will be the rule. Our professional staff will be able to say with confidence that the guidance and medical care they are providing mirrors what they would want for their own family.

We will create the organizational and economic infrastructure required to deliver evidence-based, patient-centered care and for holding ourselves accountable for that care. This new organization will be defined by collaboration and improvement. Physicians will lead teams that will manage patient care.

We are moving into the future with renewed energy and increasing insight. We look forward to building relationships with both community-based and employed physicians that will form the foundation of Greater Baltimore Health Alliance. We welcome all those who share our vision of health care as it is transformed to meet the needs of our community and nation in the 21st century.

Vision Phrase: To every patient, every time, we will provide the care that we would want for our own loved ones.

Our History

GBMC HealthCare is a private, not-for-profit corporation that owns and operates Greater Baltimore Medical Center, a regional community hospital in Towson, Maryland, two miles north of Baltimore City. GBMC HealthCare also owns and operates Greater Baltimore Medical Associates (GBMA), and Gilchrist Hospice Care, the largest not-for-profit hospice organization in the state of Maryland.

Incorporated in 1960, GBMC HealthCare consolidated the operations of two specialty Baltimore hospitals: The Hospital for the Women of Maryland, of Baltimore City and Presbyterian Eye, Ear and Throat Charity Hospital. The services were relocated to serve the growing population in suburban Baltimore County, and GBMC opened its doors in 1965 as a regional medical center, providing general acute and specific specialized services to the northern portion of Baltimore City, most of Baltimore County, and portions of Anne Arundel, Carroll, Harford and Howard counties.

The Hospital for the Women of Maryland, of Baltimore City had a unique specialization, opening in 1882 in Bolton Hill as only the second women's hospital in the country. The Presbyterian Eye, Ear and Throat Charity Hospital had nearly 100 years of excellence in ophthalmology and otolaryngology, originating as a clinic in a Civil War surgeon's East Baltimore carriage house in 1887.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at GBMC HealthCare (Ellicott City, MD).


    I had a phone interview. The person called me in the morning on a federal holiday. I was off, still sleeping. She asked if it was a good time. What was I supposed to say? - sure. Needless to say I was unprepared. But I thought to myself. How rude and disrespectful of other peoples time. At least have a courtesy to send me a quick email to set up time.
