There is no doubt that Hatzalah plays an essential role in Baltimore, responding to approximately 2,000 calls per year. This need is growing rapidly annually.
When seconds count, Hatzalah is there for you.
As an independent, non-profit volunteer organization, The Alvin S. Mintzes
Hatzalah of Baltimore is dedicated to providing quick, professional and expert
emergency care to the Northwest Baltimore community. Established in 2006, our
response team has since grown to a team of 75+ volunteers, including
emergency medical responders (EMTs and Paramedics), dispatchers, along with
5 state-of-the-art transport units enabling us to arrive on-scene in less than 3
minutes at a time when seconds can mean the difference between life and
Hatzalah’s catchment area is constantly growing. As we get responders living in various areas that are willing to volunteer, we spread the size of our response area. All our responders are licensed or certified by the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS).
Since our inception, we have responded to tens of thousands of calls for medical
assistance, including cardiac, obstetric, diabetic, traumatic, covid related, neurological emergencies, missing person searches, and mutual aid to Baltimore City Fire Department for priority 1 calls, saving thousands of lives with our prompt, efficient and professional response.
We are here for the Baltimore community, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We are always available to answer your call.

Baltimore depends on Hatzalah & Hatzalah depends on Baltimore.
In order to continue operating at maximum efficiency, Hatzalah must meet its
annual budget. Hatzalah NEVER charges to respond to medical emergencies or
transporting a patient to the hospital, we depend on the community’s support to
continue our crucial work.
As the Baltimore community continues to grow, the need for Hatzalah grows as well. We are excited to share our plans to help us meet the community’s expanding needs. This includes building an additional garage which will be dedicated to the memory of M-58 Lonnie Borck, z”l, updating our radio system, onboarding new volunteers and constantly upgrading our medical equipment to meet the latest standards.
