Home healthcare company makes $100k gift to College of Nursing

Ardent Health employees hold a $100k check to TWU.

Feb. 10, 2023 — DENTON — North Texas-based Ardent Healthcare has given a $100,000 gift to support the College of Nursing at Texas Woman’s University.

“One of our essential goals is to be a part of the community, and we want the community to be a part of us,” CEO Jimmie Stapleton said, adding: “Without nurses to staff our clinical program, we wouldn’t be able to do our jobs.”

The gift will create an endowment to support scholarships for undergraduate nursing students and to fund salary enhancements for full-time faculty who demonstrate inspired teaching and a commitment to clinical practice and safety in hospice, palliative and home health care.

Ardent, which specializes in home healthcare and is based in Flower Mound, has served the North Texas region since 2007.
