Care Hope College was established in 1996 as an educational training institution to fill a growing need for quality healthcare education. It was designed to develop “hands-on” professional health care workers. The programs are all designed to address the quality preparation of those who provide patient care in hospitals, long-term care facilities and private homes. In 2008 the College established new Christian ownership modifying the structure and organization of the school and the newly renamed Care Hope College was born with a focus of adding Christian values, goals, and objectives to all areas within the college. In 2011, the College moved to a larger location, added new programs and hired additional faculty/staff to accommodate the larger student body. The College has become the home to a large faith-based student body, which includes working adults, passionate adults who are changing their careers, and those compassionate adults who always aspired to venture into the health care industry.
