Care Hope College (formally known as Palm Beach Vocational Institution) was established in 1996 as an educational training institution to fill a growing need for quality health 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 ownership modifying the structure and organization of the school and the newly renamed Care Hope College was born. 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 student body, which includes working adults, adults who are changing their careers, and those adults who always longed and aspired to venture into the health care industry.
