The Foundation for Seminole State College has received a commitment of $1 million from Florida Hospital. This commitment will be spread across four years and will benefit the Seminole State College nursing program.
Publicly launched in February 2015, the Foundation’s comprehensive campaign’s goal was $12 million. With Florida Hospital’s commitment, the three year campaign concludes with $13.553 million raised to provide scholarships, student support services and student spaces.
"Florida Hospital’s outstanding support of quality nursing education is clear," said John Gyllin, executive director of the Foundation for Seminole State College. “This financial commitment is important to our nursing program and is the capstone gift to our comprehensive campaign. We are extremely pleased that Florida Hospital has helped us to exceed our goal in such a significant way."
Seminole State and Florida Hospital have a long history of partnering to provide student nurses with outstanding clinical experiences, as well as professional development opportunities for faculty. Between 2013-15, more than 2,200 Seminole State students completed a clinical experience at Florida Hospital with many of those students ultimately being employed by Florida Hospital. In 2015, 91 nursing graduates, or 45 percent of the class, were hired by Florida Hospital.
"We have a long history of partnership with Seminole State College and are pleased to work together with them, as we continue to provide high quality healthcare to our community," said Doug Harcombe, Florida Hospital senior executive officer. Harcombe also serves as a member of the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
