Marin General Hospital receives $10M donation, largest in hospital's history

Kentfield, Calif.-based Marin General Hospital received a $10 million donation from an anonymous family foundation in Marin County to help fund a new wing of the hospital and parking garage, according to Marin Independent Journal.

The construction, projected to cost $534 million, was mandated by California state law, which requires all facilities to be earthquake safe by 2030. Marin voters approved a general obligation bond measure totaling $394 million; however, the hospital needed to find additional funds to complete the necessary renovations.

The $10 million donation, the largest in the hospital's history, will go toward the necessary construction of the new wing of the hospital, which will focus on acute care services and contain 114 private rooms and 19 intensive care unit beds.

The new wing of the hospital is expected to open in 2020.
