In 1862, The Daughters of Charity began Saint Agnes Hospital, carrying on their centuries-old mission of service. The first Catholic hospital in Baltimore, Saint Agnes was originally created to provide nursing care for the poor. The facility moved to its present location in 1876 and was reorganized as a full-service hospital in 1906.
In 1999, Saint Agnes’ parent organization, The Daughters of Charity National Health System, joined the Sisters of St. Joseph Health System to create Ascension Health, the largest non-profit health care organization in the nation. As the current parent organization of Saint Agnes Hospital, Ascension Health is dedicated to reaching new heights in health care and service to our communities, as well as serving as a model for faith-based health care throughout the world.
At Saint Agnes Hospital, we believe that the care we provide our patients is second to none. We offer a full range of health care services and are proud that the doctors, nurses and health care professionals on our staff are the best in the industry. We believe it is our privilege to serve the people of the Baltimore/Washington area and to care for all patients who enter our doors.
