Former U.S. Rep. Helen Delich Bentley, for whom the Port of Baltimore is named, is in failing health and has been moved to full-time hospice care at her home in Timonium.
Bentley, 92, was discharged from Greater Baltimore Medical Center after spending the weekend there. It was the most recent of several stays at GBMC over the past year, during which she was treated for multiple ailments and injuries.
Key Kidder, a spokesman, said Bentley was "resting comfortably" and that family members were gathering there.
The former Republican congresswoman, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 1994, received a visit in the hospital Sunday from Gov. Larry Hogan and his wife, Yumi.
Since running her last campaign for office in 2002, a race for Congress she lost to Democrat C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger, Bentley has operated a maritime consulting business.
A former maritime editor of The Baltimore Sun and chairwoman of the Federal Maritime Commission, she has been a promoter of the Baltimore port since the 1940s.
