Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital

LENEXA, Kan. October 18, 2019 — Online education pioneer Grantham University recently entered into an educational partnership with Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital (SGCMH), a critical access acute care hospital located in Ste. Genevieve, Mo. The partnership will provide a number of educational benefits to SGCMH associates and their families.

Under the agreement, SGCMH associates and their family members can take advantage of: reduced tuition for Grantham’s more than 50 undergraduate- and graduate-level degree and certificate programs; a complimentary Prior Learning Assessment and professional development session; and a $0-down, 90-day tuition deferral program.

“We’re proud to partner with an organization that provides critical, quality healthcare services to the communities of Southeast Missouri,” said Tabitha Davis, Grantham University’s director of university outreach. “Our goal is to help SGCMH employees better serve their patients while fulfilling their own personal career objectives.”

This new partnership is one of more than 50 similar programs that Grantham has engaged in. Those agreements have been formed with various corporations, associations, colleges and community organizations in the region and across the nation.

"Grantham's online convenience is ideal for SGCMH associates and all working professionals who want to pursue higher education but need a more flexible scheduling option," said Davis. "We also offer 24/7 tutoring and dedicated support to help ensure their success through
graduation and beyond."
