When the United States took possession of the Canal Zone, Gorgas surveyed the region to determine what kinds of resources he would need to tackle yellow fever. He developed a milliondollar proposal for a program similar to the one he had executed in Havana. The plan laid out requirements for the professional staff of the hospitals and medical system; the labor required to screen and fumigate homes and barracks, drain swamps, eliminate mosquito propagation areas, and inspect the results; and supplies such as screening, lumber, and insecticides that the department needed to carry out the enormous task.

When he and Marie were passing through London on their way to Africa to investigate yellow fever there, he suffered a stroke in May and died on 4 July 1920. The King of England knighted Gorgas before he passed away. , before being buried in Arlington Cemetery. Honorary pallbearers included the secretary of war; members of Congress; and official representatives from Peru, Ecuador, and, of course, Panama. Honors continued in 1921 when Panamanian and American medical officials established the Gorgas Memorial Institute for Tropical and Preventive Medicine in Panama, and in 1928 when Congress renamed Ancon Hospital the Gorgas Hospital.
