NEPA Healthcare Foundation

The Northeastern Pennsylvania Health Care Foundation has also committed to $3.2 million in multi-year scholarship support to create the Northeastern PA Health Care Foundation scholars program at The Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM). This scholars program will enable students from Lackawanna, Luzerne, and Wyoming counties who wish to practice medicine in Northeastern PA, to receive scholarship support while attending (GCSOM).

 

The grant-funded projects must be consistent with the mission of the Northeastern PA Health Care Foundation: to support the health care needs including, but not limited to health education, community wellness, payment for medical care of uninsured and underinsured regardless of the facility of treatment, and to improve the complete physical, mental, and social well-being of the residents of the three named counties.

 

Since 2011, The Northeastern Pennsylvania Health Care Foundation has awarded over $4 million dollars in grants and scholarships.  It is a charitable foundation with the mission of supporting community wellness; health education; medical care of the uninsured and underinsured; and the complete physical, mental, and social well-being of the residents of Lackawanna, Luzerne, and Wyoming counties.  The Northeastern Pennsylvania Health Care Foundation, a registered 501©3 not-for-profit organization, was established in 2011 following the sale of Mercy Hospital in Scranton.
