Help our caregivers grow


Your gift to the Health Care Scholarships Fund will help ensure more of our caring, compassionate Providence employees have the support they need to further their health care career goals and give you the very best care.

Donors can partner with Providence to provide our caregivers with professional development opportunities and scholarships for health care degree and certificate programs. By helping support our caregivers, you’ll help us both improve care at Providence Medford Medical Center and help us retain the best talent in the Rogue Valley.

Benefitting caregivers and the community

Helping advance careers

Providence caregivers are there for you 24/7, getting to know you, caring for you and making your visits as stress-free and comfortable as possible.

Many of our dedicated nursing assistants, patient transport workers, phlebotomists and other caregivers would like to become registered nurses or otherwise enhance their caregiving skills through local degree and certificate programs. Providence provides these caregivers with flexible schedules and generous funding for professional development, but many cannot afford further education.

To help these caregivers and the patients they serve, last year Providence Community Health Foundation provided 34 health care scholarships with over $35,000 awarded.

More than 75% of our scholarship recipients continue to work at Providence after earning their degree or certification.

Thanks to your gifts to the Health Care Career Scholarship fund, Chanique Estes and Abel Dominguez are pursuing their dreams to further their health care careers.
