Gifts to Areas of Specific Care

Perhaps you or a loved one received care at one of our centers of excellence. You can choose to support the work of our institutes by designating your gift to the funds that support them. The Foundation’s funds for the Cancer Institute, the Bunting Family Women’s and Children’s Health Institute, the Cardiovascular Institute, the Orthopaedic and Spine Institute, the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Institute and the Maryland Metabolic Institute all enhance Saint Agnes hospital’s ability to deliver the best in patient care. Our physicians and nurses are truly grateful for your gifts.

Become a Part of Our Capital Campaign

The Campus Revitalization plan for Saint Agnes Hospital seven years ago is coming to fulfillment thanks to our generous donors. From downtown Baltimore you can view the seven-story lighted cross on our new Hospital Tower gracing the southern skyline. The Catonsville campus is now a vibrant facility delivering the highest quality medicine to Marylanders. Our six centers of excellence and specialty services ensure that Saint Agnes continues to provide health care that works, health care that is safe, and health care that leaves no one behind. We appreciate the leadership and vision of our campaign committee in bringing Saint Agnes so far forward, and we invite you to become part of our success. Look at what has been accomplished and our future plans.

The New South Tower: Delivering World Class Medicine

Saint Agnes Hospital ushered in a transformative new era of medicine with the opening of the new South Tower in June 2012. The 200,000 square foot building, which is part of the overall $200 million campus transformation, includes an expansive new main entrance graced with a custom Mary Ann Mears sculpture in the rotunda, five new state-of-the-art operating rooms and 120 private rooms with many innovations designed to improve the patient experience and safety.

Unique aspects of the new tower include:

  • Private rooms designed by physicians and nurses to improve the patient safety, privacy and staff efficiency
  • An expansive new main lobby with floor to ceiling glass windows and a circular drive for easy drop-off and pick up.
  • Five additional operating rooms
  • A seven-story lighted cross, the largest of its kind in Maryland
  • Three family waiting areas per floor
  • Decentralized nurses stations, increasing efficiency and access

The tower was designed using the LEAN process, which focuses on maximizing patient safety, and was built in collaboration with physicians, nurses, clinicians and staff along with engineers, architects and other design professionals.

The New Medical Office Building: State of the Art Facilities for our Physicians and Patients

Construction on Saint Agnes Hospital’s new medical office building and expanded Cancer Institute is scheduled for March 2013. When complete, the new MOB will increase space for our renowned Cancer Institute by 40% and will house a variety of our specialists including our Cardiovascular Institute, Lung team, and the Hodes Liver and Pancreas Center.
