Louis H. “Lou” Taylor and his family donated $10,000 toward the Atlantic General Campaign for the Future this July.

Their involvement with Atlantic General Hospital began before the donation they recently made. Their family ties began with Louis Hickman, Lou’s grandfather who was a county commissioner and a supporter personally and financially of the hospital.

The goal of the Taylor family is to continue that level of support as the hospital expands and grows its health care services for the local community. Lou Taylor was the chairman of the board of trustees at Atlantic General Hospital for three years.

The funds raised during the $10 million Atlantic General Campaign for the Future will allow Atlantic General Hospital to complete $35 million in capital projects. Among them is completion of a new 18,000-square-foot full service cancer care center, completion of the women’s health center in West Ocean City, renovation of existing surgical facilities, expansion of emergency services within Atlantic General Hospital and improvements to inpatient care areas. To date, the foundation secured more than $6 million of the $10 million goal in pledges, commitments and grants.
