Four individuals stand in front of SCC's logoThis fall, healthcare students at Southwestern Community College are learning and training on more advanced medical technology than ever before.

That’s because Angel Medical Center, part of Mission Health, has donated equipment valued at a total of more than $139,000 to the SCC’s Health Sciences Division.

Among the items gifted to SCC is an ultrasound machine worth $70,000 and a portable X-Ray machine that sells for $48,000.

“We are extremely grateful to our friends at Angel Medical Center for their support in helping us train the next generation of healthcare workers,” said Dr. Don Tomas, SCC President. “By working with this equipment, our students will be even more fully prepared to succeed starting with their very first day on the job.”

Located in Franklin, Angel Medical Center regularly serves as a clinical site for students in several of SCC’s 17 Health Sciences programs.

“Southwestern Community College has been a great partner with Angel Medical Center in helping open the door to healthcare careers,” said Clint Kendall, CEO/CNO of Angel Medical Center. “This equipment donation will help enhance the training of our next generation of healthcare workers for years to come.”
