Dr. Herbert Savel Education Fund

ECH’s Dr. Herbert Savel Education Fund – an endowment launched by the hospital in 2018  and aimed at providing financial and tuition assistance to ECH employees who have decided to pursue advanced degrees and health care-related certifications.

The fund was created through a significant financial gift by Dr. Herbert Savel, an internist and longtime attending physician at ECH. Recipients are selected by a multidisciplinary committee and applications are accepted throughout the year. The fund has provided financial assistance to nearly 20 individuals since its launch.

And because ECH has seen the fund’s use grow over the years — it has provided tens of thousands of dollars in financial assistance and support to nurses, medical coders, EMTs, and health care administrators at ECH — the organization has moved to expand its reach and impact.
