Saratoga Hospital Golf Invitational Raises $157,552 for Nursing Education

SARATOGA SPRINGS —The 2020 Saratoga Hospital Golf Invitational presented by A.O.W. Associates, Inc. raised $157,552 for the hospital’s Nursing Scholarship Program. 

The tournament exceeded what was raised in 2019.  And the support of the community provided funding for 53 nursing scholarship awards this year.

Since the scholarship program was launched in 2002, 135 recipients have earned their associate’s, bachelor’s or master’s degree in nursing. 

The first in the Capital Region to become a Magnet organization, Saratoga Hospital has maintained the designation since 2004. In August, the hospital earned Magnet recognition for the fourth consecutive time. Approximately 8% of U.S. hospitals have been awarded Magnet recognition, and less than 2% have earned the distinction four or more times.
