Representatives from Middle Georgia State University and Houston Healthcare at the ribbon cutting and reception for the Houston Healthcare Nursing Suite.

For 19 years, Houston Healthcare has been a continued supporter of Middle Georgia State University’s nursing programs, helping to shape the education and future careers of aspiring nurses. In recognition of its dedication, MGA is honored to announce the naming of the nursing suite on the University’s Warner Robins Campus as the “Houston Healthcare Nursing Suite.”  

"The nursing students at Middle Georgia State University are the healthcare workforce of tomorrow," says Charles Briscoe, Houston Healthcare's President and CEO. "By investing in their education, we're not just nurturing future talent; we're also strengthening Houston Healthcare's mission to improve the healthcare of the communities we serve." 

For nearly two decades, Houston Healthcare’s generosity has contributed $1.2 million to MGA through nursing faculty line support alongside program and scholarship funding that helps ensure nursing students remain enrolled and graduate without the worry of financial burden. They have also provided vital medical equipment, which has been instrumental in preparing students for a challenging career in healthcare.  

Houston Healthcare is also committed to the continued development of the Department of Nursing’s faculty, further enriching the education that students receive by ensuring that faculty members are equipped with the tools and knowledge they need to lead the next generation of healthcare professionals.   

“We are deeply grateful for the support Houston Healthcare has provided to our university’s nursing program,” said MGA President Christopher Blake. “Our faculty and students have benefitted tremendously from the opportunities presented through our partnership with the outstanding people at Houston Healthcare. We hope the collaboration continues to provide Houston County and its surrounding communities with high-quality nurses.”   

MGA’s School of Health & Natural Sciences offers associate’s and bachelor’s degrees in nursing, as well as RN-BSN, MSN Adult/Gero Acute Care Nurse Practitioner, and Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Certificate Post Master’s programs. All nursing programs are accredited through the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing. Learn more at mga.edu/nursing.
