The HCA Florida’s JFK Medical Staff Scholarship Program supports aspiring healthcare professionals among Palm Beach County’s high school graduates. Targeted at seniors and recent graduates from the county’s high school medical academies, this scholarship fuels their dreams of pursuing healthcare careers through post-secondary education.

Now in its third year, the program awarded a remarkable $15,000 in scholarships at a heartwarming ceremony hosted at HCA Florida’s JFK Hospital. The event was a grand celebration, brimming with nurses, doctors, medical staff, and leaders from HCA Florida JFK Hospitals, alongside representatives from the School District and the Education Foundation. The scholarship recipients, each celebrated and honored, were joined by their proud families, adding to the joyous atmosphere.

But this initiative is more than just a scholarship. It encompasses a holistic support system that includes mentoring, coaching, and guidance provided by the Education Foundation program team and the HCA Florida’s JFK Medical Staff, ensuring students are well-prepared for their journey in the healthcare field.
