The Morton Plant North Bay Hospital, through a grant from the Morton Plant Mease Foundation, recently contributed $63,000 to the Pasco-Hernando Community College (PHCC) Foundation. The recent gift enables PHCC to continue providing advanced training using the latest technology for patient care and improving the standards of health care education.

Morton Plant North Bay Hospital’s support will help prepare PHCC students in one of the fastest growing career areas—health care. PHCC has approximately 250 students graduating in RN and PN programs annually with a Bachelor of Nursing (BSN) degree track soon to be available.
