About Chase Brexton: Founded in Baltimore’s Mt. Vernon neighborhood in 1978, Chase Brexton began as a volunteer-run gay men’s health clinic. Our work took on a new and difficult challenge in the early1980s when we became one of the first clinics on the front lines of the fight against HIV/AIDS. After seeing the needs of the family and loved ones of those we served, we expanded our services, adding Behavioral Health and Case Management services in 1991 and finally expanding to full Primary Care services in 1995.

Chase Brexton became a Federally Qualified Health Center in 1999, the same year we opened a second center, now located in Randallstown. Two years later, Chase Brexton earned accreditation in both Ambulatory and Behavioral Health from The Joint Commission. As the decade continued, we opened centers in Columbia and Easton, and, in 2013, moved our Mt. Vernon Center to its current home in the historic Monumental Life Building on Charles Street. In 2014, we opened our Glen Burnie Center, and in 2015, we achieved recognition as a Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home.

Though health care continues to rapidly change, we will always honor our heritage, embrace diversity, and empower our patients, while innovating for the future.
