HCA supports Nashville's workforce program

Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare is backing a city-sponsored program that offers financial assistance for full-time students who want to attend community college, according to the Nashville Business Journal.

The for-profit hospital operator reportedly has agreed to donate $100,000 to Nashville Getting Results by Advancing Degrees, which is scheduled to launch this fall.

"Nashville GRAD is an innovative partnership to improve college graduation rates and the quality of life for thousands of families while enhancing Nashville's workforce," HCA CEO Sam Hazen said in a statement cited by the Journal. "HCA Healthcare is proud to support Nashville GRAD as a complementary strategy to our work with the high school academies, and we appreciate [Nashville] Mayor [David] Briley's leadership on this important issue for our city."

Nashville GRAD was developed in partnership with Nashville State Community College and Tennessee College of Applied Technology Nashville, according to the program website. It helps eligible full-time students at these schools with purchasing textbooks, transportation, industry certification fees and other assistance.
