Twin Cities donates $15,000 to Cuesta College Foundation
Local hospital supports AA registered nursing program
Tenet Healthcare Corporation and Twin Cities Community Hospital gifted $15,000 to match the WIA Nursing Industry’s donation to the Cuesta College Foundation. The foundation is a nonprofit corporation founded in 1973 to promote the general welfare of San Luis Obispo’s Cuesta College. Twin Cities’ donation marks the fourth year of a five-year Memorandum of Agreement to help Cuesta College of Nursing increase admissions within the AA Registered Nursing Program and to provide well-trained nurses for the community.
Shannon Hill, Executive Director of the Cuesta College Foundation thanked Twin Cities and the Tenet Healthcare Corporation for matching WIA’s donation, saying, “Cuesta College not only changes the lives of our students, but also touches the lives of almost every person in San Luis Obispo County. It is because of friends and supporters like Twin Cities Hospital that this wonderful college maintains its reputation for excellence and its diversity of programs and services that support student success.”
Twin Cities CEO Mark Lisa said, “Twin Cities, which employs a number of graduates from Cuesta’s nursing program, can attest to the high caliber of registered nurses that the program produces. As a business that is devoted to the health and welfare of our community, we are proud to lend a hand to the reputable Cuesta College Foundation to help ensure the future of excellent healthcare and community service throughout the county.”
The Cuesta College Foundation assists and supports Cuesta College in the attainment of educational, scientific and cultural goals and in fulfilling the College’s mission of service to the community. As the lead entity for resource development for the College, the Foundation has provided millions of dollars for student scholarships, equipment, and programs and projects.
