Andrea Marceau, recipient of the 2018 Hutchinson Health Employee Scholarship

Andrea Marceau, a hospital services scheduler at Hutchinson Health, was the 2018 recipient of the Hutchinson Health Employee Scholarship. Andrea’s experiences working at Hutchinson Health the past three years have helped shape her career goals and have given her a unique perspective on the importance of quality, local healthcare. When asked how receiving the scholarship impacted her, Andrea shared the following:

“I felt very honored to receive this scholarship from the Hutchinson Health Foundation. There are many hard working students who are deserving, and it was a privilege to be chosen. My education has not taken the traditional course. After twenty years of full-time employment in various areas of healthcare, the time was right for me to pursue my goal of becoming a professional nurse. Through most of my schooling I have been working full-time, along with being a wife and mother, which can be quite challenging.

I will complete the nursing program at Ridgewater College in December 2019 and will then be eligible to take the national licensure test. My career goals are currently being shaped as I learn more about the field of nursing. I have an interest in hospital nursing as well as hospice care.

Hutchinson is an exceptional community. The community is always looking for ways to improve the quality of life for its residents. Providing scholarship opportunities for all types of students encourages growth of the individual student, which spreads to the family and community overall.

Hutchinson’s proximity to the metro allows for many opportunities, yet it still holds on to the small town feel. Working at Hutchinson Health for over three years, I have seen firsthand the care and concern each staff member takes in their work. It’s important to us that each patient receives great care, and the staff incorporates that small town feel into our approach with patients. This type of personal care is a direct result of keeping healthcare local in our community.”

We are currently accepting scholarship applications for 2019 with the deadline date for many nearing. You can find more application and submission details here.
