At The Heart Of Healing!

It all began following World War II, when a small group of local and civic business leaders had the wisdom to recognize the need for a community hospital—and the determination to bring their vision to reality. You know a community is truly blessed when it has among its citizens people like this who are committed to a goal and have the energy and leadership skills necessary to affect positive change.



As a result of their efforts, what was then Carroll Hospital Center in Westminster MD opened its doors for the first time on October 1, 1961. Inside, a growing community of patients and visitors found a medical facility of tremendous promise.

I was the first patient discharged from the hospital. I had a  tonsillectomy.

The other day when I went to visit my mom, she showed me the new book that the hospital put out for their 50th anniversary. There is a picture of me in the book!
 I don't remember too much about my first hospital stay, but I do remember eating a lot of ice cream.
