information about the sale of Liberty Campus
Bon Secours Baltimore Health System is continually looking for ways to better serve our community and meet our core commitment to provide compassionate, high-quality health care and Good Help to Those in Need®.
To that end, we have entered into a letter of intent to sell the Liberty Village Campus to our neighbor, Baltimore City Community College. We believe that by consolidating and relocating some of our programs and services, we can operate more efficiently and improve service.
This transaction, which has been under consideration for several years, must be approved by state officials and others, but we expect the sale to be completed by January 2010.
We recognize that this sale will disrupt operations for some of our tenants, co-workers, and community members who use this campus, but we will make every effort to minimize those disruptions. In order to operate more efficiently, some programs and offices now housed at the Liberty Campus will be offered space in other Bon Secours facilities.
This page is designed to help give you information about the future of buildings and programs on this campus.
You can also call to ask a question or convey a concern: 410-362-3032.
This Information Line will be regularly monitored, and a Bon Secours representative will return all phone calls within a timely manner.
In addition, we also have set up a special e-mail box for questions/concerns: LibertyCampusQuestions@bshsi.org
