HUGH ROBERTS MEMORIAL NURSING SCHOLARSHIP
Northside Hospital retiree, Hugh Roberts, passed away on January 14, 2022. Hugh worked in the Business Office at Northside for 27 years before his retirement in 2017. Having experienced the importance of well-trained Critical Care nurses, Hugh's wife, Angie, and the Roberts family presented The Northside Hospital Foundation with a check for $251,000 to establish the Hugh Roberts Memorial Nursing Scholarship, which will provide financial assistance to currently enrolled nursing program students or practicing Northside employee nurses who want to advance their skills to include critical care units.
On August 28, 2022, the Northside Hospital Business Office held a ceremony to name a conference room in his honor. Hugh’s family, friends, and former coworkers gathered for lunch in the Hugh Roberts Conference Room to share their memories and stories of the man who honored the hospital by “paying it forward.”
