Center for Excellence in Nursing
The Leesburg Regional Medical Center (LRMC) Foundation established the Center for Excellence in Nursing to advance excellence in nursing education, recognition and retention. The program targets the following specific needs:
- Honoring nurses. Our nurses provide high-quality care every day. If someone provided you and/or your family with very good care during your recent hospital stay, please consider acknowledging that nurse by making a contribution in their honor. Your tax-deductible gift to the LRMC Foundation will not only let your chosen nurse know how much you appreciated the exceptional care they provided, but will also support the outstanding level of care our community has come to expect. To make a donation, call the LRMC Foundation Office at 352.323.5500.
- Enhancing education. The Center for Excellence in Nursing offers scholarships for hospital employees who desire to become a nurse or who wish to advance in their nursing career. The program includes onsite and offsite training in conjunction with local colleges and universities. Upon graduation, the scholars agree to work in a Central Florida Health facility for at least two years. To apply for a scholarship, complete the application and letter of agreement and return to the LRMC Foundation Office at 701 N. Palmetto Street, Suite G, Leesburg, FL 34748.
- Celebrating nurses. To applaud and celebrate our nurses each year, the Center for Excellence in Nursing hosts an appreciation banquet during National Nurses Week. The banquet includes the announcement of our annual scholarship recipients and Values in Action award winners.
To make a donation to the Center for Excellence in Nursing, please contact the LRMC Foundation Office at 352.323.5500.
