CLARKESVILLE - Beds in the classroom are not necessarily for sleepy students.  But M.C. Healthcare's recent donation of three long-term care hospital beds for the healthcare program labs at North Georgia Technical College will be greatly appreciated by the students.

The healthcare programs, which include Medical Assisting, Practical Nursing, Clinical Lab Technology, Pharmacy Technology, Emergency Medical Services, Health Care Assistant, Medical Coding, and Fire Fighter, have the largest enrollment of students at the college.  With the construction of the new 12,000 square foot addition to the Currahee Campus beginning this fall and the future RN Program opening on the Clarkesville Campus in 2013, these beds will offer unique experiences for students who will be enrolled in the programs.

"This is such a wonderful contribution to the college," said NGTC Foundation Director Cynthia Brown.  "The beds will be used in training students in health related programs at the college.  We are so thrilled that M.C. Healthcare had such high quality equipment to contribute to the future of our workforce in this area."

Founded in 1912, M.C. Healthcare Products is one of North America's premier manufacturers of hospital beds and related products.  M.C. Healthcare has recently been purchased by Span-America, a Greenville, South Carolina manufacturer of mattresses.
