SLEEPY HOLLOW, New York --- Kenneth Mitchell, Vice President and Team Leader of M&T Bank’s Commercial Healthcare Banking Division, visited Phelps Memorial Hospital Center here recently to present a check for $10,000 to Phelps President and CEO Keith Safian.
The donation was in support of the Nursing Promise Program at Phelps, which provides financial assistance and a way for hospital employees to pursue a nursing degree while continuing to work at the hospital. In return for financial support during their education, Nursing Promise recipients agree to continue to work at Phelps as an RN for a specified period of time.
“We have worked very hard these past few years to build up the Nursing Promise program and we are proud to be able to provide our employees with incentives like this to help them grow and develop their skills,” said Safian. “This generous gift from M&T Bank will help us continue to improve the quality of care for our patients.”
