CHI St. Vincent Donates $62K Worth of Supplies to National Park College

CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs recently donated $62,000 worth of supplies to National Park College’s Nursing and Health Science programs.

The supplies included various medical equipment and materials, such as catheters, disposable gowns, waterproof pads, and gloves. 

Laura McAnally, Nurse Excellence Manager and Magnet Program Director at CHI St. Vincent, explained the donation was a result of a cleaning effort by her education department.

“As we were going into the new year, our team was organizing our supplies and realized we had supplies we could no longer use. They reached out to me with the suggestion to donate them to NPC,” said McAnally.

She said being able to give our future nurses more resources to be the best they can be just means the world to us. McAnally also said they know these resources will lead to giving Hot Springs patients the best care possible.

“This commendable act of philanthropy specifically targets four out of the seven nursing and allied health programs, providing invaluable resources for hands-on training and skill development. The collaboration between CHI St. Vincent and National Park College exemplifies a commitment to nurturing the next generation of healthcare professionals, fostering a positive impact on the quality of education and healthcare within the community,” Janice Ivers, Dean of Nursing and Health Sciences, said.

“NPC students are the future of healthcare. CHI St. Vincent envisions a healthier future for all of us, inspired by faith, driven by innovation, and powered by our humanity,” Mandy Davis, Community Outreach Director for CHI St. Vincent, said.
