The Physicians’ Hospital in Anadarko is announcing a partnership with Caddo Kiowa Technology Center to offer adult basic education classes and Financial Literacy Classes for Adults in the hospital.
Adult Basic Education ad“CKTC has provided career training, business and industry services and leadership programs throughout the district for 49 years,” said Vic Woods, Assistant Superintendent, CKTC. “This partnership with TPHA is an excellent example of how business, industry, education, stakeholders and communities should come together for the betterment of local citizens.”
Travis Villani, CEO, TPHA added, “A hospital is not typically seen as a classroom by the public, we want to change that and see CKTC as the logical partner to help us begin that process. We are pleased to kick-off the process by providing adult basic education classes in the hospital conference room as the first initiative in our new Community Centered Health Hub (C2H2) project.”
“C2H2 – a new approach to healthcare delivery developed by First Physicians Capital Group, the company who staffs and manages The Physicians’ Hospital in Anadarko – seeks to change how the public views their hospital. TPHA is not only a place you can go to get well, but it is also a place you can go to stay well”, said Villani.
Woods outlined a plan to pilot adult basic education classes in TPHA through the end of May 2018. “Plans to continue offering classes in TPHA with the fall 2018 semester and continuing with the spring 2019 semester will depend largely on the success of the pilot project,” said Woods.
An Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education grant covers the cost of classes, so there is no charges to the student. The number of students served in this initial phase will determine future grant dollars.
