Caeli Campbell

LITTLE FALLS, NY – Little Falls Hospital, a part of the Bassett Healthcare Network, recently awarded Caeli Campbell, the Dr. Bernard Burke Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $1,000.

On behalf of Dr. Bernard Burke’s many years of service to Little Falls Hospital and to honor his lifelong dedication to his patients, the Medical Staff of Little Falls Hospital established The Bernard J. Burke Memorial Scholarship Fund. The scholarship is awarded annually to a deserving student in the Little Falls Hospital service area who plans to pursue a career in the healthcare field. Recipients of this scholarship need not only to have a desire to serve others in the healthcare field but also have a financial need.

Caeli graduated on June 26 from West Canada Valley Central School, third in her class, and maintained honors throughout high school. She is excited for her next chapter in her life which will take her to SUNY Stony Brook on Long Island this fall to study Biochemistry with a Pre-Medicine track. Caeli had the opportunity to shadow surgeons in the operating room at Little Falls Hospital and was inspired by how the healthcare team worked together.
