The Health Career Institute in West Palm Beach recently announced its official name change to HCI College in order to reflect the recent development and growth of the college, both in physical size and a variety of new opportunities available to students.
HCI College was founded in humble beginnings, as a provider of American Heart Association lessons such as basic first aid training and CPR, but soon grew to offer a variety of courses in the medical field.
By 2002, HCI was offering EMT programs, and by 2005, the school had grown to include paramedic programs as well. Most recently, HCI has opened a new location in Fort Lauderdale in addition to the location in West Palm Beach, as well as offering bachelor’s degrees for the first time in its 25-year history.
HCI President Robert Bonds believes that the name change comes at an appropriate time in the college’s history, providing the college with a new formality and gravitas as a true institution of learning and self-improvement, while staying true to its beloved and familiar roots as the Health Career Institute.
HCI College offers general education courses, associate’s degrees in EMS and fire science, and a nursing curriculum. For more info., visit www.hci.edu.
