Anderson Awards Scholarships

One of the best things about being a community hospital is when we get the chance to “give back” to the community.  Our Auxiliary and Medical Staff do that every year through the scholarship programs they created for area students seeking education and careers in healthcare!

This year a total of 9 students earned scholarships worth $1,000 each to be used for their education seeking healthcare careers.

The Auxiliary was able to recognize two of their five recipients during a July membership meeting.  Honored were:

Courtney Deiters, Breese, IL
