Aug 13, 2012
The Richmond Campus has named Patti A. Clay Regional Medical Center as a Distinguished Community Employer. On Wednesday, July 25th Campus Director Keeley Gadd, Student Services Director Cynthia Hansel, and Career Center Director Lindsay Bramlage visited the hospital and presented the award to the medical center’s Vice President Chris McClurg, Director of Marketing Jill Williams, and Director of Patient/Guest Relations Jerian Shaw.
“We wanted you to be the first to receive this honor because Patti A. Clay has been such a huge partner for years with National College. Whether it’s employing our graduates or providing externships—you have been invaluable to us,” Keeley said. Keeley added that the hospital also participates in campus career fairs and health fairs and students enjoy volunteering at special events at the hospital.
Mr. McClurg estimated that approximately 10-15% of the medical professionals that they employ at the hospital are National College graduates. “They’re very well prepared and they’re wonderful,” said Mr. McClurg. “We appreciate [National College] as a resource.”
