Premier Health Sinclair Academy

Premier Pulse     July 2022

Premier Health and Sinclair Community College partnered to create education and career advancement opportunities for Premier Health employees. Premier Health is the first employer to work with Sinclair Community College to develop such a program. The goal of the academy is to upskill Premier Health employees as Sinclair students to create a national model to train critically needed health care personnel.

The Premier Health Sinclair Academy will provide education, skills, and certificates needed by employees to advance in several career pathways, including nursing, respiratory care, medical imaging, surgical technology, pharmacy technology, paramedic, patient care technician, and medical assisting. In many cases, tuition expenses will be covered by a combination of funding sources, including financial aid and Premier Health tuition assistance benefits.

Through the Premier Health Sinclair Academy, employees will receive career, personal, and academic support, including tuition assistance, to complete a certificate or degree program at Sinclair Community College.  Sinclair has dedicated an employee specifically to the Premier Health Sinclair Academy to ensure Premier Health employees have a smooth transition to their Sinclair program.

Implementation planning is ongoing. Rollout of the program for Premier Health employees is slated to begin this fall with a focus on clinical career pathways.
