Donors to be honored

January 28, 1993

Carroll County General Hospital Foundation plans to honor donors who contributed to its 1989 capital campaign at a dedication ceremony today.

A hospital wing that serves heart patients will be designated the Naganna Wing to recognize cardiologist Dr. Chitrachedu Naganna and his wife, family practitioner Dr. Vimala Naganna, who were major donors in the 1989 campaign.

The couple declined to make public the amount they gave, hospital spokeswoman Gill Chamblin said. The wing to be named for the Nagannas includes an eight-bed critical care unit and a 32-bed bed progressive care unit for heart attack patients.

Contributors who gave $5,000 or more during the campaign will be identified on a "donor wall" in the hospital's outer lobby. A recognition plaque honoring the Nagannas will be placed in the family waiting area of the second-floor unit.

The 1989 fund drive raised $3.8 million for renovation and expansion that included a 20-bed psychiatric unit, renovation of an area adjacent to the operating rooms for pre- and postoperative care for outpatients, and the addition of a cardiac catheterization lab.

The hospital also purchased sophisticated equipment such as a nuclear magnetic resonance imaging scanner a computerized nuclear medicine camera with the donations.
