President, St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor and Livingston hospitals
I want to wish Washtenaw Community College a happy 50t anniversary. Your commitment to education matches well with our efforts here at St. Joe’s to be healthy in mind, body and spirit.
St. Joe’s has enjoyed a long relations with Washtenaw Community College. Sister Judy VanderVeen began teaching at WCC in 1972, and though she recently retired, she continues to volunteer and substitute for nursing instructors in the WCC program. Likewise, former WCC president Gunder Myran served as a member of St. Joe’s Board of Trustees for many years.
St. Joe’s and WCC have collaborated on many educational programs and teaching grants over the years, not only in the nursing program but also in the radiology, physical therapy and surgical technician programs.
We congratulate you on the outstanding nurses and technicians we’ve had the wonderful opportunity of supporting in their clinical education and training experience; and the privilege of hiring many into St. Joe’s positions. Happy 50h, WCC!
Keep Up The Good Work!
