“I have worked with Physical Therapy Assistants in four states and found the PTAs produced by the WCJC to be some of the best I have ever worked with.  Our facility, El Campo Memorial Hospital, has hired PTAs who have graduated from WCJC almost exclusively over the past two decades.  Without this program, we would have tremendous difficulty finding highly skilled Therapy Assistants in this rural area.  With the aging baby boomer generation, there is a deficit in health care professionals projected in the future.   This expansion will ensure a highly skilled work force in the area who are current with the latest treatment approaches and technology. “

“OakBend Medical Center is so proud to partner with the Wharton County Junior College Nursing programs.  It has been such a privilege to interact with the LVN and CNA students.  They are able to do their clinicals in various departments of our hospital system.  With the expansion plans enabling your College system to grow and expand, you are also providing opportunities for students throughout Fort Bend County.  All of the WCJC students are so eager to learn, very courteous, patient, and so caring.  We know through your efforts these young men and women will be the future of our Healthcare needs.”
