Marin General Hospital receives 2 record-setting gifts in 2 weeks

After disclosing a record-setting gift of $10 million last week, Kentfield, Calif.-based Marin General Hospital received a bequest twice the amount, according to the Marin Independent Journal.

The gift of $21 million allocated $15 million to pay for the construction of the new west wing of the hospital, $3 million to support the existing Braden Diabetes Center and $3 million to be used on anything the hospital needs.

"A $21 million bequest for a community hospital is unheard of," Lee Domanico, CEO of Marin General Hospital, told the Marin Independent Journal. "This gift is really symbolic and can be used to catalyze major giving."

The bequest came from Bruce Braden, an individual that served on Marin General Hospital Foundation's board.
