Our first patient stepped through our doors more than 55 years ago. Some of our first associates are still living in the community, or are part of our volunteer program. They have fond memories of those first days, but are even more inspired — and even awed — by the changes that have occurred since opening in 1961.

Carroll Hospital has evolved significantly from a community hospital to become a true medical center — on par with larger urban hospitals. But still, we’re different and — we think —special. Why? We wouldn’t be here without our community. In fact, our community created us. Sixty years ago, a small group of Carroll County citizens gathered and began fundraising for a hospital. Today, the fruits of their endeavors are beyond what even they expected.
