Medical Center of Peach County, Atrium Health Navicent aids High School Health Program

Medical Center of Peach County, Atrium Health Navicent (MCPC) has partnered with Peach County High School's health science program to aid the school in achieving re-certification as a Georgia Department of Education "Industry Certified" program for exhibiting excellent curriculum. To attain this certification, programs must participate in a yearly review and extensive re-certification every five years.

"Achieving this Industry Certified is evidence that our Health Science program is preparing students for any path they choose. Whether it is continuing onto college for an advanced degree or directly into the workforce,": said Dr. Ken Hartley, Principal of Peach County High School.

Students worked with MCPC to learn more about career opportunities in the healthcare field. MCPC nurses Leslie Reynolds and Becky Meeks, along with CEO Laura Gentry, assisted with the certification survey through audits of the requirements and student interviews.

"It has been a pleasure to partner with these students as they obtained recertification and work toward future career goals. It was a great experience for those of us at the hospital," said Laura Gentry, RN, CEO of MCPC.

The "Industry Certified" program underwent a rigorous review process, the Peach County High School Science department extends gratitude to the business partners who donated their time to help achieve this goal.
