The Baptist Easley Hospital Board, in conjunction with their Hospital Foundation, created an endowed scholarship fund to honor former hospital CEO Roddey E. Gettys, III. Mr. Gettys retired in February 2013 after 43 years of distinguished service to Baptist Easley Hospital. The Roddey E. Gettys, III Clinical Scholarship Endowment Fund was initiated to provide scholarships for individuals interested in pursuing a career in healthcare, and to perpetuate Gettys’ legacy of clinical excellence and patient-focused service now synonymous with Baptist Easley Hospital.

The Baptist Easley Hospital Foundation will award the Gettys Clinical Scholarship prior to the 2017-2018 academic year based on the following criteria:
