CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Summit Health on Monday morning presented a $100,000 donation to Franklin County Career and Technology Center as a symbol of its commitment to the future of local nursing.
The donation helps fund the Summit Health Center for Nursing and Health Science Education currently under construction at the school.
“We are proud to be a part of this building project and even more proud that our name will grace this campus,” said Summit Health Senior Vice President of Hospital Services Sherri Stahl. “As a nonprofit health system, we must be good stewards of our finances.”
Stahl continued that the donation is an investment into the future of nursing in the community.
“We take our investments very seriously, and that is exactly what our donation is – an investment into the future health and wellbeing of the people of Franklin County. Training our local nurses to care for our community is of utmost importance,” said Stahl.
Once complete, the center will provide FCCTC nursing and health science students with a state-of-the-art facility to learn and hone skills.
