Hospital plans to add centers in Westminster

December 20, 1998|By Donna R. Engle | Donna R. Engle,SUN STAFF

Carroll County General Hospital has two projects on the drawing board for 1999: the construction of an oncology center in Westminster and the opening of an outpatient radiology center at the nearby Richard N. Dixon Building.

The hospital's plan to build a one-story, 13,250-square-foot cancer treatment center on South Center Street is scheduled for a hearing before the county Board of Zoning Appeals on Dec. 29.

In the Dixon Building, the hospital plans to renovate the second floor to consolidate outpatient radiology services offered at Carroll County General and at a Poole Road facility operated by the hospital's partner, Advanced Radiology, P.A.

The hospital has added services or facilities in each of the past two years. The moves are not part of an overall plan to prepare for the 21st century, said David P. Horn, vice president for marketing and managed care.

"I don't know that they all fit into one single plan. But all these initiatives are geared to meeting the health care needs of the community," Horn said.

Both centers were described as multimillion-dollar projects.
