Saint Joseph's College and Jasper County Hospital have entered into an agreement allowing the Hospital to provide health care and wellness initiatives for the students on campus. Sharon
Moore, LPN, will be the full-time nurse and wellness coordinator at the College.
Moore will be responsible for promoting wellness and health education on campus and assisting students in making connections to local physicians.
"The resources and connections to referrals that are associated with a hospital will be wonderful for the students," said SJC Director of Counseling Services Laura Wagner. "This connection will allow us to expand the services we offer."
This most recent collaboration between the Hospital and SJC builds on a strong existing relationship, which includes the placement of a Hospital athletic trainer at the College and the Hospital's participation in the St. Elizabeth BSN Program at the College.
"We have always enjoyed our relationship with Jasper County Hospital," said SJC President Dr. F. Dennis Riegelnegg. "This is another way that we continue to enhance our partnership with the Hospital and provide excellent health care for our campus community."
Saint Joseph's College, named a "character-building college" by the Templeton Foundation and a "best Midwestern college" by the Princeton Review, is a four-year, Catholic college offering 27 majors, 4 group majors, 34 minors, and 9 pre-professional programs, complemented by the nationally acclaimed Core Program.
