Every gift to Carroll Hospital Center is important and helps us fulfill our mission to deliver superior health care services that meet the growing and changing needs of our community.
Membership into the Founders Circle is both an honor and a privilege. The Founders Circle was established to honor a group of visionary communitarians who, in the 1950s, spearheaded the effort to build a hospital in Carroll County. These pioneering philanthropists included:
• Scott & Anita Bair I have been committed to Carroll Hospital Center for more
• Dr. Charles & Ruth Billingslea than 50 years. This hospital would not be here without
• Charles O. Fisher, Sr. the support of the community. As a member of the
• F. Kale & Betty Mathias Founders Circle, I know I am supporting the
• David & Betty Scott vision and future of this great organization.
• Atlee & Janet Wampler ~Charles O. Fisher, Sr. (1917-2012)

What does my membership mean to Carroll Hospital Center and Carroll Hospice

Gifts coming into the Foundation are used as additional resources to complete projects, improve procedures and fund initiatives to continue to better the health care in our community.
To join the Founders Circle, please contact the Carroll Hospital Center Foundation at 410-871-6200 or e-mail foundation@CarrollHospitalCenter.org.

In my wife’s last five days on this earth, Sharon was in a coma. Unfortunately, the Dove House was not completed at that time. I was capable of administering her morphine, but was not able to give Sharon the dignity care that hospice personnel can provide. Sharon died on August 20, 2006. Death with dignity is an important part of life, and I know support is needed to help hospice with the tools and staffing necessary to provide this. This naming gift was my way of honoring Sharon and supporting a much needed program.
