A hearty response from the community, staff and physicians has brought the Carroll County General Hospital capital campaign to a close at127 percent of its goal, said H. Hugh Dawkins, president of the CCGHFoundation Board of Directors.
The campaign raised $3.82 million toward new equipment such as a magnetic resonance imaging machine, and expansion such as that planned in the emergency and surgery departments. The campaign goal had been $3 million, Dawkins said.
"It was a fantastic success," Dawkins said of the campaign, whichstarted two years ago.
Of the $3.82 million raised, $2.5 million came through individuals and corporations that donated large gifts. The medical staff donated $856,255; hospital employees gave $116,000; and the CCGH Auxiliary donated $300,000.
