Concord Hospital and Granite State College Team Up to Provide Employees with an Affordable College Education

Concord Hospital is proud to announce a new partnership with Granite State College, which will provide a significant tuition discount to all Concord Hospital employees. With the college offering associate, bachelor's, and master's degrees and master's certificates, this partnership will create opportunities for professional advancement for staff members across the hospital.

Additionally, Granite State has recently assessed the Surgical Technologist Training Program, a rigorous advanced educational opportunity offered within Concord Hospital. Upon successful completion, hospital employees will be eligible to receive up to 30 credits toward their associate or bachelor's degree at Granite State College.

"Granite State College has built a strong reputation for supporting adult students with flexible course offerings, which are relevant for the healthcare industry," said Kathryn McKillop, Concord Hospital Career Center Manager. "We also appreciate the Colleges recognition that transfer credits aren't limited to what individuals earn in the classroom and we are pleased there are options to support professional growth."

"While our mission has always been focused on college access and affordability for adult students, it is especially meaningful to support those on the frontlines of the public health crisis as they balance work, family and critical professional responsibilities," according to Tara Payne, Vice President of Enrollment Management at Granite State College.
