Philanthropy at Sheppard Pratt Health System is making a tremendous difference in the lives of more than 60,000 patients and students who rely annually on Sheppard Pratt Health System for their mental health and educational needs. With your support, we are able to sustain our Health System’s patient care, education, and research missions. In 2013, we provided a total of $14.7 million in charity care – a 65% increase over the previous year.

When Baltimore businessman and philanthropist Moses Sheppard bestowed his entire estate to help form The Sheppard Asylum in 1853, he envisioned an institution that would fundamentally improve treatment of the mentally ill, which was deplorable at the time. He envisioned a place that treated patients with respect and dignity, with a window in each room and soothing grounds to view through that window. Now, 160 years later, Philanthropy continues to play a pivotal role in sustaining Moses Sheppard’s dream and allows us to lead the way in providing exceptional care to our community.
