Northwest Florida State College’s radiography program received a $10,000 boost from HCA Florida Fort Walton-Destin Hospital. The funds will provide scholarships for students seeking careers as radiology technicians.

The donation marks a “transformative moment” for the program, known for cultivating skilled healthcare professionals, said NWFSC President Dr. Devin Stephenson.

  • He thanked the hospital for the donation, which will “empower our students to pursue their academic and professional goals in radiography.”

Zach McCluskey, CEO of HCA Florida Fort Walton-Destin Hospital, said the funds allow the hospital to invest in the “future of healthcare” by helping shape “a generation of compassionate and skilled caregivers.”

The NWFSC program is highly selective, accepting students annually for enrollment in the summer semester. Graduates are eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists exam and become certified radiology techs after the two-year program.

“As a hospital, our commitment extends beyond patient care; it encompasses nurturing the future of healthcare,” added McCluskey. “By investing in scholarships for Northwest Florida State College’s radiology program, we are empowering young professionals to forge a brighter future for healthcare in our local community.”
