We want to recognize your capacity to lead and serve. The CMC Heart & Hands Scholarship is presented to two students entering grades 7-12 who have made a significant contribution or impact in their community.

Catholic Medical Center (CMC) has a long-standing commitment to caring for our community, serving more than 180,000 patients each year under our one mission: to carry out Christ’s healing ministry by offering health, healing and hope to every individual who seeks our care.

CMC’s compassionate care extends beyond the advanced clinical services we offer patients in our facilities. We are in the community, supporting vital programs and services to meet health needs of the most vulnerable and medically underserved populations. Annually, CMC provides millions of dollars worth of care to our community. These include health services, such as: behavioral health services, Healthcare for the Homeless, Poison Dental Facility, primary care services for the underserved and underinsured, and services offered at CMC’s Pregnancy Care Center. Additionally, based on needs identified in the Greater Manchester Community Health Needs Assessment, CMC provides community-based health education, prevention and supportive programs, including: health screenings provided at little or no cost to community members, Medication Assistance Program, patient transportation services, and services through our Parish Nurse Program.

Similarly, Catholic schools promote service as an essential component of their curriculum. Many Catholic schools engage students of all ages in service programs. Catholic school students learn that community is at the heart of who we are. There are no strangers, only brothers and sisters in the Lord. Therefore, students have a responsibility to respond to the needs of others because we are all part of God's family.
