Education Needs

Learning Programs for our patients and our staff

Each year the Foundation touches the lives of our community members through free community educational events on heart disease, breast cancer and many other medical issues. Additionally, the Foundation has funded educational programs available through the hospital’s interactive TV system as well as orientation information available to new patients in our Pediatric Center and Cancer Center.

Furthermore, the Foundation has a long history of providing funds to support education for our staff, including nursing certification, continuing education, and recognition. With the Foundation’s assistance, thousands of hospital staff members have upgraded their skills, learning about new technologies and treatment methods. Additionally, numerous innovative workforce solutions have been researched and implemented making nursing staff more effective in their jobs.

Below are some specific examples of how the Foundation impacts Community and Medical Education:

Jenkins Nursing Scholarship – Thirty LRMC nurses have benefited from scholarship funds that helped them attain their Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing Degree from Florida Southern College. This heightened level of nurse training has scientifically proven to enhance patient outcomes in a hospital setting.

Victorian Tea for Breast Cancer Awareness – Each year the LRMC Foundation sponsors a free community education event that raises awareness on current breast cancer related topics. Close to 400 women annually attend the tea.
