The First AIDS Service was the clinical care component of the Johns Hopkins Hospital for AIDS patients, including inpatient and outpatient services. It was organized in 1985 to provide quality and compassionate care utilizing a multidisciplinary staff from the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and with assistance from the community. Services included medical and nursing care, social services, and emotional support for patients and their families. It also included a research setting to develop and evaluate treatments as well as a staff skilled in treating the disease. Staff were chosen on the basis of their interest in AIDS care and research.
Polk was an Advisory Board member to the First AIDS Service. Advisory Documents include a detailed description of First AIDS Service, list of committee members, and annual review dated 1988.

The Joseph Earle Moore Clinic, known as the Moore Clinic, is currently an outpatient unit of the Johns Hopkins Hospital that is the center of AIDS research and patient treatment at Hopkins. It is the largest AIDS care program in the state of Maryland. The Clinic’s Directors have included Joseph Earle Moore, Victor McKusick, William D. Hillis, John Bartlett, William Ruby, Richard Chaisson, and Joel Gallant.
The clinic opened in 1915 as the Venereal Disease Clinic for the purposes of studying and treating syphilis. At the time, the clinic was also called “Department L,” referring to an old name for the disease, lues venerea, and later it was called, “Medicine I.” During World War II, with the introduction of penicillin in the United States, syphilis was brought under control and the clinic was gradually transformed into a center for treating chronic diseases. The clinic was given its current name in 1957 upon the death of its longtime director, Joseph Earle Moore, who was a pioneer in the field of venereal diseases. Under the subsequent Director, Dr. Victor McKusick, the focus of the clinic changed to genetic conditions. The Moore Clinic was designated a Clinical Research Center (CRC) in 1973 and researchers were invited to submit study protocols to conduct outpatient clinical research trials on a small scale.
John Bartlett, Chief of the Infectious Diseases Division, and Epidemiologist, Frank Polk, changed the clinic’s focus once more to HIV/AIDS in 1984 and the Moore Clinic became the first AIDS clinic in Maryland. Bartlett and Polk each set aside a half day a week to care for a small group of gay men with AIDS. Polk designed a research project that was the first epidemiological study of the disease, which subsequently became the design for the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS), a longitudinal study with research sites in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Chicago, and which is still ongoing. Polk and Bartlett treated and studied the first MACS patients through the Baltimore arm of the study, SHARE (Study to Help the AIDS Research Effort).
The staff of the Moore Clinic was multidisciplinary and services included physical examination, lab tests, and counselling. From 1984 until 1987, there was no charge to AIDS patients for care and as of 1987 only those who could afford to pay were charged for services. With its approval and funding as an AIDS Treatment and Evaluation Unit (ATEU) in 1986, patients gained access to new treatments including experimental AIDS drugs. After Polk’s untimely death in 1988 of a brain tumor, Polk’s leadership during these years persisted and the clinic with its focus on HIV care continued to grow. Bartlett oversaw the international research effort that resulted in 1997 in the development of the antiretroviral drug therapy for treating HIV infection.
Residing today in the Carnegie Building of the Johns Hopkins Hospital, the outpatient unit is known as the Moore Clinic for HIV Care. Supervised by the Hopkins AIDS Service, it continues to offer services specialized for patients with HIV infection.
