Mount Desert Island Hospital in Bar Harbor has signed an education partnership agreement with the Graduate & Professional Studies online division at Saint Joseph's College. Employees of the hospital will be entitled to fee waivers and discounts for a variety of online courses offered by the college, including both undergraduate and graduate courses in health care administration and nursing.

Saint Joseph's works with educational partners to identify course needs and, in some cases, design custom programs for employees. "We work with your organization to design a program that meets your educational goals and invests in your employees' development," says Lynne Robinson, director of continuing education and training for the online division at Saint Joseph's.
