NWTC’s Soar Higher Partner award is an annual recognition honoring an industry partner championing technical education, giving back to the community, and advancing the College’s mission. Bellin Health has been that and more.

“Bellin Health is a partner in every aspect of education,” said Vice President of College Advancement Meridith Jaeger. “They hire our graduates, partner to develop continuing education for their workforce, and generously support students through financial and in-kind donations.” 

Providing Learning Experiences and Job Opportunities 

Bellin Health provides clinical locations for a dozen NWTC programs, giving students critical experiences to prepare for healthcare and human safety careers. In addition, Bellin regularly holds on-campus career fairs, classroom presentations, and more. The organization is committed to training the next generation of healthcare professionals and providing excellent care for our community. 

Bellin regularly hires NWTC graduates. Currently, the organization has 1,885 NWTC students or graduates working in its ranks. Bellin also contracts with NWTC’s Corporate Training and Economic Development department to provide on-the-job continuing education. 

In addition to providing training and careers for NWTC students, Bellin staffs Campus Care, an on-site health clinic providing healthcare for students and staff at the Green Bay campus. This service helps students receive needed healthcare while attending college.

Supporting Scholarship and Achievement 

The organization has a scholarship named in honor of Mark Reinke, MD, to support health sciences students pursuing higher education and filling workforce needs. They also sponsor various campus events including healthcare summer camps, the Brown County Golf Classic, and student activities. In total, Bellin Health has donated over $225,000 to support student scholarships at NWTC. Bellin also donates used medical equipment to the College for student training in programs like Biomedical Electronics Technology.

“Supporting NWTC through learning opportunities and in-kind donations demonstrates their commitment to educational growth and the future of healthcare in our region,” said Don Cormier, NWTC Biomedical Electronics Technology instructor.
