We’re working together 24/7 to protect Baltimore City from health and safety threats

In emergencies of all types, Baltimore City community members respond at the individual level, within neighborhoods, as government agencies and healthcare organizations. Public health response begins at the most basic level. Many of you are involved in it on an ongoing basis for yourself and your family without thinking of it as protecting our collective health and safety.

Welcome From The Health Commissioner

Welcome to the new Baltimore City Health Department (BCHD) blog!

I am delighted to start the B’healthy in B’more blog as I begin my first day at BCHD—the oldest public health department in the country. With the leadership and support of our Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, our 1,100 employees work innovatively and extremely hard every day to serve the public and improve health.
