The Education Department is responsible for organizing and providing all educational opportunities for the hospital staff as well as public offerings. Continuing Education is a fundamental principle of Southwest Memorial hospital. The department’s mission is to provide staff education that will meet the strategic needs of the organization.
The Education Department also coordinates incoming students from many local schools/colleges.
