A gift of $30,000 from 3M to Carroll County General joins $3.5 million the community hospital already has raised from the community to expand the building and services, said CCGH Executive Vice President Charles Graf.
The hospital's goal is to raise another $1.5 million from the community through individual and corporate donations.
The gift from 3M represents the largest for a plant its size in Carroll, said Suzanne Lee, director of the hospital's foundation. The plant in Westminster employs 73 people.
"The 3M Foundation recognizes the need for quality health-care institutions and that a wide range of related programs is essential for the continued growth and prosperity of the community," said Patrick Kotten, 3M plant manager.
