MedStar Harbor Hospital Joins Family Health Center of Baltimore for Mask-Up Event

Partnership Ensures Access to Masks and COVID-19 Testing in Cherry Hill

December 10, 2020

BALTIMORE—MedStar Harbor Hospital is partnering with the Family Health Center of Baltimore (FHCB) on Friday, December 11 for Mask-Up Cherry Hill- a free community event where clinicians will distribute masks, provide free COVID-19 testing, administer flu vaccines, and educate residents on staying healthy and safe during the pandemic.

“There’s no better time than now to be vigilant about health and wellness,” said Jill Donaldson, FACHE, MedStar Harbor Hospital president and senior vice-president of MedStar Health. “Our community members need to manage health issues, like diabetes and high blood pressure while in the midst of a pandemic surge and flu season. We’re proud to be able to put our clinicians in the neighborhoods to help keep patients healthy and safe. We are in this together and are grateful for the opportunity to partner with the FHCB to reach as many people in our community as we can.”

“This is collaboration at its best,” said FHCB Health System CEO Brian A. Hawkins. “Last Sunday, almost three thousand more people contracted coronavirus, adding to the 215,000 cases in Maryland. We have to do our part to protect citizens. This collaborative gives us the ability to network and access more people, together.”

FHCB is a not-for-profit federally qualified health center (FQHC), providing primary care services at four locations in the Baltimore area.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and registration is encouraged. You may register by clicking here. Patients can arrive at any time during event hours to be tested and do not require an appointment. Results will be available in 3-5 business days.
