The 2016 WAMMC Scholarship Awards
For calendar year 2016, The Women’s Association of Morristown Medical Center awarded $26,000 in scholarships to an impressive and inspiring group of 12 scholars from many areas of the hospital. The WAMMC Scholarship mission is to support the development and education goals for those in direct patient care roles demonstrating extraordinary care and service to patients, their peers and colleagues, the community and others as part of Morristown Medical Center. In addition to an exemplary performance rating and notable recommendations from their supporters, each candidate showcased leadership and a continued impact in their roles both internally within their unit and beyond, as well as externally in the broader community. To see such a passion and commitment to excellence demonstrated by them in their professional roles in patient care while focusing on developing and honing their skills, is truly inspirational and an exhibition of the overall MMC vision and mission.
