A scholarship fund for northern Colorado employees within University of Colorado Health got a major shot in the arm this week to the tune of $520,000.
The estate of Dr. Richard G. Titus, a former Colorado State University faculty member who died in 2012, made the contribution to the Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies Foundation in recognition of those “engaged in the medical profession,” according to a news release. The donation stems from a series of treatments and care Titus received over the years, and a portion of the donation will help support scholarships for leaders in nursing, as well as other qualified employees through the foundation.
“This generous gift allows us to facilitate the learning that is essential for our employees to stay current in their professions with the increased complexity of the health care needs of today and into the future,” said Bonnie Clipper, chief nursing officer for Medical Center of the Rockies, in a statement.
