Additional Information
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. Top-notch programs and services like our Family Birthplace, advanced surgical services, our Imaging Center through a partnership with Advanced Radiology, and the the Tevis Center for Wellness are well beyond what was planned.
