Healthcare and hospital workers go above and beyond every day. And in today’s environment, they have been challenged in unimaginable ways. Nationwide, all of the work, dedication, and risk these heroes take on – day in and day out – has not gone unnoticed.
Healthcare and hospital workers are appreciated every day at Foothill Credit Union. It’s why we offer a range of products and services just for those in the healthcare industry.
You sacrifice to keep the rest of us as well and safe as possible. Let us take care of you. If your hospital belongs to one of our Select Employer Groups, you qualify for membership. Learn more about the Foothill Credit Union benefits for healthcare workers below.

Career Advancement Scholarships
One of the benefits of opening an account at a credit union is that you don’t become a customer, you become a member of a community within a community. As a member-owned nonprofit, when one of us succeeds, we all win.
That’s why we created our Career Advancement Scholarships! Any qualifying Foothill Credit Union member in the medical profession is eligible to apply for a scholarship of up to $3,000 to put toward their studies or career development.
To qualify for a scholarship, you must be a member for at least three months before applying (the application period runs from August to October). Please note that Foothill employees, Board and Committee members, and their families are not eligible.
