Through funds made available by the Tenet Healthcare Foundation, Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital recently donated $7,500 to the North Harris Montgomery Community College District Foundation to support an endowed scholarship. The scholarship will be presented annually to students attending North Harris Montgomery Community College seeking an education in the medical field.
“There are many reasons for today’s serious nursing shortage,” says Terry Wheeler, chief executive officer. “The one that Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital can target on a local level is education. We are committed to reaching out to young men and women who may be overlooking a career in nursing simply because they are not aware that nursing provides a wide range of meaningful, challenging and specialized jobs with starting salaries competitive with other professions.” Cy-Fair Regional Health Network, a service of Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC), is a locally focused health network developed by Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital and designed to improve access to primary care services in underserved areas of the Cy-Fair area of northwest Houston.
