"GBMC is My Family"

Betty Ann Black's Story


Betty Ann recalls what it was like to move into GBMC and her experience volunteering:

“Moving day was fun. They went in groups. I always worked in OB -- that was my bailiwick for 25 years. I came back to GBMC after 25 years at Union Memorial. George, my husband, was diagnosed and then treated for cancer. Hospice was caring in the hospital. Both care teams became a part of my life. Hence I eventually became a volunteer in OB and Women’s Surgical the day they opened. Those girls became my friends.

This is what happens when you are born and raised in Baltimore. It causes warm feelings in knowing GBMC is my family. Tearfully, I go every time I visit the girls in Women’s Surgical.

The life I have had at GBMC during the last 25 years allowed me to do what I was trained to do with so many wonderful friends. 32 years of delivering babies.”
