Grantham University and FEW Foundation Offer Academic Scholarship for FEW Members

Kansas City, Mo. (Vocus/PRWEB) February 28, 2011

Grantham University, an online university serving working adult students around the world for 60 years, and the Federally Employed Womens (FEW) Foundation for Education and Training have partnered together to provide a fully funded scholarship to a deserving member of FEW. The scholarship, valued at $ 36,000, covers tuition, required textbooks, software, and fees for an undergraduate or graduate degree at Grantham University.

In today’s environment of decreased training budgets, tight personal budgets, and the need to advance one’s career through education, the FEW Foundation’s academic scholarship to Grantham University is intended to help fill those gaps, said Ms. Dawn Nester, president of the FEW Foundation for Education and Training.

The scholarship is open to FEW members, with at least one year of membership, or the spouse of a qualifying FEW member, and/or the dependent children of a qualifying FEW member. Visit the FEW Foundation Web site for more information and to download the application form. Applications must be submitted by Thursday, March 31, 2011. The FEW Foundation will announce the scholarship recipient in June.

Last years scholarship recipient, Elizabeth Hill, a member FEWs Greater Atlanta Chapter in the Southeast Region, is working toward her Master of Healthcare Administration degree. After graduation, Hill plans to continue to advance her career within the Veterans Administration’s healthcare system.

Attending school online gives me the flexibility I need to juggle family, work and school, said Hill. What I love about Grantham is that the professors work with you to ensure you are successful in your goals. My advice for those who are interested in the scholarship is to apply and pray you win. It is a great scholarship opportunity and the staff at the school is wonderful.

In addition to the annual scholarship, members of FEW and their immediate families can take advantage of a special tuition grant at Grantham University that includes a Textbook and Software Grant which covers the cost of required textbooks and software.

HMHPs Parent, Catholic Health Partners, Changes Name to Mercy Health

Youngstown, Ohio (PRWEB) July 24, 2014

Catholic Health Partners (CHP), the parent healthcare system of Humility of Mary Health Partners, has changed its name to Mercy Health. The systems name change is part of a Ministry evolution to one unified team, focused on high-quality care, increased efficiencies and lower patient costs. Mercy Health is Ohios largest health system and fourth-largest employer.

Our new name is a symbol of the new way we are working together to improve the health of the communities we serve, said Michael D. Connelly, Mercy Healths president and CEO. It is a key component of our vision to empower those we serve to achieve their optimal well-being and health, and to maximize our quality and cost efficiency by simplifying our structure. This approach to serving and healing demonstrates our commitment to making healthcare easier as our more than 1,000 physicians and 32,000 employees strive to make lives better mind, body and spirit to help our patients be well.

The system already operates under the Mercy name in five of its current seven markets, including markets serving Cincinnati, Toledo, Lorain and Springfield in Ohio, and Paducah, Ky.

Over the next several years, the Mercy Health name will be phased into all system facilities, including all HMHP facilities. This allows patients to retain the trust, confidence and security they currently have in physician, hospital and outpatient facilities that have served their communities for more than a century.

In addition, the Ministrys website will change to

We start with our patients at the center of every decision, said Kristen Hall Wevers, Mercy Healths chief brand, marketing and communications officer. Simplifying our operating structure improves our ability to maximize our clinical quality and cost effectiveness, and allows us to improve the overall experience patients and their families have when they seek our services in times of need.

The new name also will help Mercy Health more effectively communicate its Mission, results and stories. Mercy Health is a national leader in quality, safety and cost-effectiveness. True to its Mission, Mercy Health provides more than $ 1 million per day in community benefit to those patients who need services but cannot otherwise afford them. Mercy Health is a major economic force in all of the communities it serves, providing nearly $ 9 billion in annual economic benefit in Ohio alone, according to a recent independent survey.

We are excited about coming together under one name as part of a comprehensive effort to transform healthcare and better serve the people of the Mahoning Valley, said Bob Shroder, president and CEO of HMHP. It is important for our patients to know that although the name of our facilities will change over time, the physicians, hospitals and outpatient centers will continue to provide the same high-quality care. We are extremely fortunate to be a part of a progressive organization working in unison to carry forth the mission of our founders. We are building on a solid foundation as we look ahead as one team, focused on the health of the communities we serve.

Mercy Healths roots date back to the mid-19th century, when women religious answered calls to serve poor and under-served people in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Kentucky. Railroad workers, immigrants and entire communities facing serious outbreaks of illness depended on congregations of women religious from France, Canada, Germany and Ireland to establish hospitals and nursing schools. During the same period, in Cincinnati, Jewish business leaders established a hospital to serve the citys growing Jewish population. A century and a-half later and for the last quarter century these hospitals, physicians and aligned services have been united in one organization dedicated to helping individuals and entire communities achieve better health. Today, that organization is united under a single name: Mercy Health.

The system incorporated in 1986 as Mercy Health Care System. It changed its name to Catholic Healthcare Partners in 1997 to more accurately reflect the multiple religious communities that sponsored it, and its emphasis on partnering to build healthier communities. The name was later shortened to Catholic Health Partners to reflect its growing emphasis on prevention and health, in addition to caring in time of need.

We are continuing the ministry started by our founders in the 1800s, Connelly said. Consistently providing proven best practices by simplifying our structure will strengthen and advance our ability to deliver high quality, affordable care. We are changing to constantly improve our ministry so that Catholic healthcare remains a strong and vibrant choice for healthcare consumers.
