      Helping_Elderly_Woman.jpgHealth Care

      Our founders raised a family during an era where good medical care was hard to come by.  Hospitals were just beginning to be built as pillars within communities and were not as accessible as they are today. Mr. and Mrs. Knott saw the potential that accessible, quality care had for strengthening the community, and they were also empathetic towards the strife that illness and death causes in a family.

       

      During his lifetime, Mr. Knott used his business acumen and builders experience to purchase and then donate land to Johns Hopkins for their west campus expansion, as well as to other institutions. He knew that having world class medical facilities would bring recognition and strength to the Baltimore community.

       

      Today the Foundation continues our founders’ commitment in health care by supporting compassionate care needs of families and their caregivers.  We concentrate on programs that provide curative, preventative, rehabilitative, and palliative care, as well as patient support services.
