SC4 grads make a difference for MediLodge

John Dillon has always been fascinated by the medical field. He started his career working as a certified nurse aid at MediLodge, a skilled nursing facility with 35 locations in Michigan. In 2004, he earned his associate degree in nursing at St. Clair County Community College. Now he works as a registered nurse for MediLodge of Port Huron.

“I chose nursing because the medical field always interested me,” Dillon said. For him, choosing SC4 was the obvious choice. “The instructors are knowledgeable and the curriculum is at cutting edge of the field.”

Dillon is in good company at his workplace. In fact, 3 out of 4 nurses at MediLodge locations in St. Clair County (Port Huron, St. Clair and Yale) received their training from SC4.

“It’s a pretty cool statistic and a great reflection of how our facilities rely on the SC4 nursing program,” said Cody Hitchcock, regional human resources director for MediLodge.

And it’s not just St. Clair County — 76 percent of nurses from MediLodge of Richmond, 64 percent of nurses from MediLodge of Cass City and 33 percent of nurses from MediLodge of Sterling Heights received their degrees from SC4.

Why do so many people choose the SC4 nursing program? For Dillon, it was hard to narrow down the answer.

“Everything,” he said. “The best part of the nursing program at SC4 is everything.”
