Bikur Cholim of Greater Washington

About Us

Bikur Cholim of Greater Washington is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit, volunteer based service organization that provides assistance to people facing medical and related challenges.

BCGW was founded in 1997 to honor the memory of Howie Wildman z"l. We care for the physical and emotional needs of the Jewish ill, the elderly and their caregivers in the community, and partner with health-care professionals to help meet the unique needs of Jewish patients. BCGW supports and maintains kosher pantries at area hospitals and provides ongoing community education to promote awareness of the mitzvah of Bikur Cholim.

BCGW serves all segments of our community, as well as patients who travel to the region to seek medical treatment at area hospitals and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

By offering all our services without cost, we free people to focus on their recovery without additional financial stress.
