Hood College Partners with Frederick Health to Offer Tuition Benefits

FREDERICK, Maryland—Hood College and Frederick Health signed a NeighborHOOD partnership agreement today that will offer educational opportunities for Frederick Health employees and eligible family members.

“Frederick Health is a neighbor and valued community member. Through our partnership with them, they manage our health and counseling center, collaborate with us on nursing and counseling academic programs, and host our students as interns at their facilities such as the James M. Stockman Cancer Institute,” said Hood President Andrea E. Chapdelaine, Ph.D. “We are so thankful for their services, and it is an honor to offer their employees and families this opportunity for education on our campus.”

Tuition benefits will be available to hospital employees, their spouses and dependent children who are degree seeking and enrolled either full time at the undergraduate level or part time at the graduate level.

“We are grateful to our friends at Hood College for extending this opportunity to our staff,” said Tom Kleinhanzl, president and CEO of Frederick Health. “We have no higher imperative than having caregivers with the adequate skills to care for our community, and Hood College will continue to be an important partner in fulfilling this priority.”

Hood’s NeighborHOOD Partners Program is designed to thank community partners, increase access to a Hood education to help build a more knowledgeable and prepared workforce, and contribute to the intellectual capital of the community.

Hood College is an independent, liberal arts college, offering 28 bachelor’s degrees, four pre-professional programs, 19 master’s degrees programs, two doctorates and 10 post-baccalaureate certificates. Located in historic Frederick, near Washington, D.C., Baltimore and the I-270 technology corridor, Hood gives students access to countless internships and research opportunities.
