MORRISTOWN, NJ, May 16, 2022 – The Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center (WAMMC) is pleased to announce its 2022 Scholarship Awards. WAMMC Scholarships are awarded each year to outstanding Morristown Medical Center team members to help further their continuing education, development and leadership skills in the hospital and healthcare field.
WAMMC’s Scholarship Program dates back to 1957 and supports the staff at Morristown Medical Center by granting scholarships to hospital team members pursuing careers in the healthcare field. WAMMC Scholarship recipients are chosen based on applicants demonstrating extraordinary care and service to patients, their peers, colleagues and the community.
In 2022, WAMMC’s Scholarship Awards Committee awarded $28,000 in scholarships to 14 employees. Scholarships were awarded to students working toward a Bachelor, Masters or Doctorate degree.
WAMMC’s ongoing commitment to its Scholarship Program can be attributed to the hard work of successful fundraising and the generous donations of WAMMC members.
“WAMMC’s Scholarship Program for healthcare professionals continues to be a very important part of our mission to support Morristown Medical Center’s goals to provide superior health services to our community,” said Kathy Christie, President, Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center. “We are grateful to all of our donors for their generous contributions to this program, which enables us to continue our Scholarship Program in support of those hospital employees who are working toward attaining their advanced healthcare-related educations.”
“Our nurses are an integral part of providing extraordinary patient care, and WAMMC’s Scholarship Program continues to assist our nursing staff in obtaining the advanced skills that are key to making Morristown Medical Center the number one hospital in New Jersey,” said Brandee Fetherman, MSN, RN, CCRN-K, Chief Nursing Officer, Morristown Medical Center. “We are enormously grateful to the Women’s Association for its ongoing commitment to this Scholarship Program.”
