Strong Foundation, Brilliant Future.

Built on a Mission of Service

Saint Agnes Hospital was founded in 1862 by the Daughters of Charity to meet the health needs of the poor. At the time it was the first Catholic hospital in Baltimore. As a Catholic health care ministry and member of Ascension Health, Saint Agnes Hospital is dedicated to the art of healing to sustain and improve the lives of the individuals and communities we serve.
