The Door County Medical Center (DCMC) was nationally recognized recently for its partnership with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) in building the area’s workforce in the medical field. Since the inception of the program that expanded off the Nursing Assistant Course offered at NWTC, 242 high school students have completed the course and another 175 still needing testing. DCMC Education Coordinator Renee Glesner says the nursing classes taught by NWTC faculty with classroom, lab and clinical portions offered at the hospital is a perfect fit for the area.
Door County Medical Center received a $2,500 grant by the national law firm of Quarles & Brady and Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative for the best example of a rural hospital engaging in joint efforts in their community.
