Southwest Indiana AHEC presents award to Memorial Hospital in Jasper

Web -SWI---AWARD-WINNERSouthwest Indiana Area Health Education Center (AHEC) presented Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center in Jasper, Indiana, with the 2015 Partnership Matters Award during a statewide meeting March 10 in Indianapolis.

“A vibrant community requires not only a strong health care system, but an ongoing commitment to the future health care workforce and unique educational opportunities for its own residents,” said Jane Friona, director of Southwest Indiana AHEC, when presenting the award to Tonya Heim, Memorial’s vice president of Patient Services and chief nursing officer. “Recognized as a regional leader in the provision of comprehensive health care, Memorial Hospital is also a strong supporter of medical education.”

Friona said that during the 2014-15 academic year, family physicians affiliated with Memorial Hospital will precept nine family medicine clerkships for third-year medical students, providing lodging at no cost when needed by the student, as well as free meals in the hospital cafeteria during the entire clerkship. 

“Memorial Hospital has also hosted a health careers camp the past two summers in partnership with us and Vincennes University – Jasper, which allows regional high school students to experience the array of health careers available to them,” said Friona. “This summer experience is funded by Memorial Hospital, and many of their employees participate in planning and conducting the camp with the full support of hospital administration.”

In addition, Memorial Hospital representatives are actively involved on the Southwest Indiana AHEC advisory council, including hosting a meeting each year. “All of these activities contribute to an excellent partnership between Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center and Southwest Indiana AHEC,” said Friona. “This is positively impacting the pipeline of future health professionals in southern Indiana.”
