The late Eileen Austin Neal

Neal Scholarship for nursing studies

Springfield Hospital is accepting applications for the 17th Annual Eileen Austin Neal Nursing Scholarship of $1,000.  This scholarship is open to any student who has been accepted into a nursing program of study.  Applicants will be judged on interest in and commitment to the field of nursing.  Determination will be based on merit and need.

Eileen Austin Neal was a registered nurse at Springfield Hospital for 64 years, retiring in 2005.  She was the first recipient of Springfield Hospital’s Community Health Award in 2003. In 2004, the hospital established the Spirit of Nursing Award in recognition of her many years of dedicated service.

Upon her death in February 2006, at the request of Neal’s family, Springfield Hospital established a nursing scholarship fund in her name with the gifts received in her memory. “This scholarship continues the positive influence Eileen had on both nursing and the community,” said Lyndsy McIntyre, VP of Patient Care Services at Springfield Hospital.
