Saratoga Hospital’s Golf Invitational combines a spectacular day of golf at the award-winning Saratoga National Golf Club with the opportunity to support a very worthy cause: the Nursing Scholarship Program.
The Scholarship Program provides nurses with financial assistance to pursue advanced degrees. The investment produces a nursing workforce whose knowledge, skills, and compassion have a direct impact on patient care. Nurses who continue their education have a better understanding of the challenges of today’s healthcare environment—and are better equipped to respond with innovative, evidence-based solutions.
Thank you to our generous sponsors and committee members!
Your support of the Nursing Scholarship Program allows Saratoga Hospital to remain at the forefront of healthcare. In 2004, Saratoga Hospital became the first in the region to achieve Magnet® recognition for nursing excellence, earning resignation in 2010, 2015, and again in 2020. Since the scholarship program was launched in 2002, 171 recipients have earned their associate’s, bachelor’s, or master’s degree in nursing, and another 64 are currently working toward their degree. This is all thanks to the tremendous generosity, time, and talent of our community. At a time when the nurses arguably need our support the most, your dedication to this event and its mission helps them continue to feel valued and appreciated by their community. Thank you!
