Capable. Qualified. Compassionate.

Employee educational funds are made possible by generous donations from caring people in our community. It is our privilege to help applicants advance their career. In addition to academic scholarships, the Confluence Health Foundation also has scholarships for national clinical and nursing certifications relevant to Confluence Health employment.


The power of scholarships goes beyond the financial support. Scholarships can transform the careers and lives of recipients and ensures a legacy of talented healthcare professionals in North Central Washington. Since 1985, more than $1.48 million in scholarships has been awarded to Confluence Health employees.

Continuing Education

Special funds have been established to support the professional growth and recognition of Confluence Health’s staff. These funds embody a long-term investment in the people who provide the excellent healthcare you can expect from Confluence Health.

Each year, these funds enable the Foundation to proudly sponsor North Central Washington’s Nurse Week, which honors the outstanding care our local nurses provide to our community through educational events, celebrations, and awards.

Continuing-education funds are to be spent at the behest of the donors and cannot be solicited by employees or organizations.

Certification Scholarships

Ongoing certification requirements ensure a safe and well-qualified workforce and enable Confluence Health to maintain a high level of quality services for its patients. Certification funds help retain talented healthcare workers in today’s competitive environment so that the communities of North Central Washington continue to have access to high-quality healthcare close to home.

Helping Our Peers in Emergencies (HOPE Fund)

The HOPE Fund assists fellow Confluence Health employees in times of extraordinary financial crisis. Support can include help with rent, food, or utilities.

The HOPE Fund is fully funded by employee donations. Many employees elect to support the HOPE Fund through ongoing payroll deductions. In addition, proceeds from the annual employee basket raffle, “jeans days,” food-service donation jars, and some on-campus scrubs sales benefit the HOPE Fund.

Employees can find program guidelines and a support-request form on the Pulse intranet. Employee Health Services coordinates the request review committee, which is made up of employees from throughout the organization. Applicants, situations, and the value of assistance are kept confidential.

Central Washington Hospital’s Healing Garden

Foundation donors funded the rejuvenation of a small courtyard garden at Central Washington Hospital. This beautiful space has been dedicated to Confluence Health employees and providers who faithfully serve the healthcare needs of residents of North Central Washington. The healing garden is accessible to all patients, visitors, and staff.
