St Luke’s Hospital has donated five hospital beds and two patient recliners to Polk County High School for use in health science education.
This donation benefits healthcare students, specifically those pursuing a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) certification.
“We appreciate our ongoing partnership with St. Luke’s Hospital,” said Polk County Schools Superintendent Aaron Greene. “This donation is another example of St. Luke’s caring for our students and community.
“The donated beds and chairs will help our students learn skills and techniques using more modern equipment, helping them better prepare for their careers in healthcare. Thanks to St. Luke’s for this generous donation to our nursing program.”
“Our goal with this donation is to advance the training of our high school students in healthcare sciences,” said Michelle Fortune, St. Luke’s CEO. “We hope some of these students will remain in our local community and work at St Luke’s as they pursue their careers.”
