Foundation’s $10,000 Donation Supports Local Careers in Health Care


The Healthcare Careers Educational Grant program provides financial assistance to Christian County-based students interested in studying health care and offers opportunities to work at Taylorville Memorial Hospital upon degree completion.

“These education grants are key to helping us to create a go-to source for local talent,” said Kim Bourne, president and CEO of Taylorville Memorial Hospital. “We want to help students receive the education they need and encourage them to build their careers in our community at Taylorville Memorial Hospital.”

The Bertrand Hopper Memorial Foundation has been a supporter of the hospital since the 1980s.
