Baltimore Medical System has opened a new center in Highlandtown.
At 3700 Fleet Street, the Highlandtown Healthy Living Center replaces our sites at 3509 and 3701 Eastern Avenue. The new site is a green building. We are applying to the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program for their highest rating - platinum.
Federal stimulus funds from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act helped BMS build the new center. An award of $1.2 million was received in June of 2009.
The Healthy Living Center has capacity to serve 22,000 people and deliver 84,000 medical visits annually. With this new site, we will be able to serve 8,000 new patients in addition to those we already serve.
As a green building, this center helps patients learn about the many links between lifestyle, environment, and health. The Healthy Living Center has education rooms, community meeting space, and displays about health and the environment.
