First hotel in USA to gain medical travel accreditation

Lord Baltimore Hotel has become the first property in the USA to gain both a GBAC STAR Facility Accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council and a GHA WellHotel Accreditation for Medical Travel from Global Healthcare Accreditation (GHA).  This means it complies with cleaning, disinfection, and infection prevention standards, as well as customer experience and safety protocols specific to the needs and expectations of medical travel guests.

The GBAC STAR / GHA WellHotel Programme aligns GHA’s WellHotel programme with GBAC STAR, the cleaning industry’s outbreak prevention, response, and recovery accreditation. The virtual accreditation is performance-based and requires documentation for 38 elements, including cleaning and disinfection chemicals; goals, objectives, and targets related to guest satisfaction for medical travel; audits and inspections; and emergency planning and response.

The Lord Baltimore Hotel is a historic property in downtown Baltimore at 23 stories high with 440 guest rooms. Located in the vicinity of Johns Hopkins Medical Centre and other top U.S. hospitals, the hotel offers packages and services that meet the needs of medical travel guests.
