Union College is pleased to announce the recent corporate partnership between the Division of Online and Graduate Studies and Appalachian Regional Healthcare.

Through the Corporate Partner Program, Union College will become a preferred education partner for Appalachian Regional Healthcare (ARH) employees. In return, ARH employees will receive a tuition discount on courses and programs offered by the Union College Division of Online and Graduate Studies.

ARH is a not-for-profit health system serving 350,000 residents across Eastern Kentucky and Southern West Virginia. With more than 5,000 employees and a network of more than 600 active medical staff members, ARH is the largest provider of care and single largest employer in southeastern Kentucky and the third-largest private employer in southern West Virginia. ARH operates hospitals in Barbourville, Harlan, Hazard, Hyden, Martin, McDowell, Middlesboro, West Liberty, South Williamson and Whitesburg, Kentucky, and Beckley and Hinton, West Virginia.

“This is an exciting partnership for Union College as we strive to provide quality education to those in our region,” said Dr. David Williams, Dean of Online and Graduate Studies at Union College. “Union offers a variety of graduate programs, but our new Master of Science in Healthcare Administration (MHCA) program should prove especially beneficial to ARH employees.”  

Designed to target the needs of healthcare professionals entering or planning to enter the field of healthcare administration, the MHCA follows courses ranging from Evidence-based Healthcare and Informatics to Ethics and Social Responsibility.

All of Union College’s online programs are offered in convenient 8-week courses with multiple admission dates throughout the year. Union College’s 10-course MHCA, MBA, MS in Administration, and MS in Athletic Administration programs can be completed in 5 terms. Union College offers fully-online undergraduate programs in Business, Management, Law Enforcement, and Substance Abuse Counseling.
