The Natchitoches Regional Medical Center Foundation is committed to providing scholarships for local students, who want to pursue a career in healthcare. Since its inception in 1987, the Foundation has provided more than 120 scholarships, totaling more than $300,000 to students in the fields of nursing, radiology, laboratory sciences, and pharmacology.
Reorganized in 2005 with a $500,000 contribution from CHRISTUS Health, the NRMC Foundation now also provides financial resources to agencies and organizations, who deliver healthcare services and wellness programs to citizens of the greater Natchitoches Parish area.
Grant applications are accepted annually and awarded to initiatives that support healthy lifestyles and CHRISTUS Health’s mission of wellness towards mind, body and spirit.
The annual Hospital Gala is a Foundation fundraiser with a loyal following of over 500 business and healthcare professionals throughout the state.
