$516,538 Texas Workforce Commission Grant

Through an innovative training partnership with Texas' premier job-training program announced today, a bevy of employees at San Antonio’s second largest private employer---Methodist Healthcare System of San Antonio---will become alumni of customized St. Philip’s College professional training programs in health sciences and nursing.

Today, Alamo Colleges District ceremonially announced a $516,538 grant that funds customized training for 957 experienced new and incumbent workers in the nursing, acute patient care and cardiac life support professions at Methodist Healthcare System of San Antonio, with St. Philip's College as the employer’s training partner.

The funds for the training come via a Skills Development Fund grant from the Texas Workforce Commission, and the trainees will include a bevy of specialists at Methodist Healthcare System of San Antonio: laboratory scientists; registered nurses; charge nurses; clinical educators; office managers; patient care assistants; rehabilitation aides and unit secretaries. According to the Methodist Healthcare web page, as San Antonio’s second largest private employer, Methodist Healthcare facilities employ more than 10,000 individuals, including 2,700 physicians in all specialties. In 2014, Methodist Healthcare provided services to 96,000 inpatients and 413,000 outpatients. Methodist Healthcare employees will become alumni of the St. Philip’s College customized training experience, and can add these professional development credentials to their resumes. According to the Texas Workforce Commission web site, the commission’s Skills Development Fund is Texas' premier job-training program providing local customized training opportunities for Texas businesses and workers to increase skill levels and wages of the Texas workforce. The commission administers funding for the program. Success is achieved through collaboration among businesses, public community and technical colleges, workforce development boards and economic development partners.

After Texas Workforce Commissioner Ruth R. Hughes presented a ceremonial check to representatives from both Methodist Healthcare System of San Antonio and Alamo Colleges District in the Atrium of the Center for Health Professions at the college on Sept. 21, guests toured the state-of-the-art academic facilities where the innovative customized training will occur. The center is part of a $49 million 215,000–square–foot multipurpose academic complex completed in 2009 and funded as part of a $450 million bond package approved by voters in Nov. 2005 to both construct new Alamo College facilities and renovate existing college buildings.
