Hays Medical Center Foundation Announces Scholarship

Hays, Kansas (February 1, 2012) – The Bickle Family Foundation has established a scholarship for students majoring in Respiratory Care.  The $2,500 scholarships will be awarded annually through the Hays Medical Center Foundation. 

Students will be evaluated on the basis of financial need, academic achievement, references, leadership potential and career goals.  The recipients will be required to complete one year of employment at HaysMed after becoming credentialed as a Registered Respiratory Therapist.

Stan Munsch, HaysMed's director of respiratory care, said, "This is a unique way for us to assist a student earning a respiratory therapy degree and also help the medical center in attracting skilled staff in this profession.  The Bickle Family's longtime support of HaysMed has been very generous and their commitment to respiratory therapy is deeply appreciated."

Since its establishment in 1995, the Hays Medical Center Foundation has played an increasing role in the growth, expansion and level of quality healthcare provided to our community by HaysMed. The Foundation's singular purpose is to ensure that HaysMed's promise of medical excellence remains unbroken and is carried out for generations.
