BATAVIA — A registered nurse at United Memorial Medical Center was recently awarded the 2020 St. Jerome Guild Health Professional Scholarship.

Nicole Hopkins has worked at UMMC, dedicating six years to patients in the UMMC Pain Center.

Hopkins received a $500 scholarship in memory of Dorothy Baker, a dedicated Honorary Guild volunteer.

The St. Jerome Guild, Inc. offers the annual scholarship to applicants who are currently employed at UMMC/Rochester Regional Health and are pursuing advanced degrees in health care fields.

Proceeds from the Gift Shop continue to purchase equipment for UMMC.

The Guild is currently conducting a “Home Town Heroes: 2020 Wall of Warriors” initiative. The GLOW community can help support the initiative by donating $10 per star representing one of the 1000 UMMC employees located at the North Street and Bank Street campuses.

All proceeds from this initiative will be donated to UMMC to purchase vital equipment. Checks may be made payable to: St. Jerome Guild, Inc., 16 Bank St., Batavia, NY 14020.
