The CRMC Foundation is Accepting Applications to the Best Family Scholarship Fund

Coffeyville Regional Medical Center (CRMC) Foundation is accepting applications for the Best Family Scholarship until March 31, 2021. The intent of the scholarship is to provide financial assistance to students that have been accepted into a degreed medical field program (for example, but not limited to: paramedic, lab, x-ray, nursing, medicine, etc).

The Best Family Scholarship was created by the children of Jerry and Norma Best in memory of their father and to honor their mother. Over the last several years, the family has worked together at a variety of fundraisers to enhance their scholarship fund and in 2020 the family was able to endow their scholarship fund so that the Best Family Scholarship will continue for years to come. This scholarship has been awarded since 2015 and ten recipients have been assisted, many over multiple years to complete their educational goals.

The Foundation Scholarship Application can be attained on the CRMC website at or by emailing Lisa Kuehn at

Applicants are asked to submit a 500 word reflective essay on why they chose to pursue a career in healthcare.  They must also submit school transcripts that reflect past grades. The Best Scholarship Committee is comprised of healthcare professionals from the Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri.  They may award multiple winners and applicants who have been awarded previously are encouraged to apply each year they are enrolled and will be considered for awards over multiple years.


The Coffeyville Regional Medical Center (CRMC) Foundation operates as a separate 501©3 corporation.  It is our mission to provide financial support and assistance to the hospital so that they may achieve and maintain excellence as a healthcare provider and leader for the communities that we serve.
