“Fairfield Memorial Hospital is honored to be a part of the Clemence Elizabeth Cox Scholarship fund through the Jerry L. Cox Foundation. As a need for healthcare workers continue to grow, these scholarships will aid students by helping to remove the financial burden of loans that often restricts the choices of many aspiring healthcare professionals. These scholarships help to provide an easement of mind and leave the focus on the studies. We are blessed to offer these scholarships through the Clemence Elizabeth Cox Scholarship fund.” commented FMH CEO Katherine BuntingWilliams, Ph.D., LNHA.

Fairfield Memorial Hospital has been working in collaboration with Frontier Community College to provide students with these financial resources.
