In 2013, because of the challenges facing rural healthcare, Carroll County Memorial Hospital Board of Directors and Jeff Tindle, former CCMH CEO, felt it was important to establish a foundation to assist in development long-term viability for local healthcare.
The Carroll County Memorial Hospital Foundation started by providing scholarships to local youth. Since its inception, it has distributed approximately $100,000 in scholarships to individuals seeking careers in healthcare and healthcare workers looking to advance their credentials.
With the help of generous supporters, the Foundation has raised over $500,000. In 2019 the Board established The Hope Fund to help patients in need of medication, durable medical equipment and transportation assistance. After the initial pilot program, the fund has helped over 40 individuals and, in the last year, referrals have more than tripled.
Enhancing the health of our rural communities through partnerships,
education and innovation.
