NCH joins other University of Dallas partners, including Michaels, Kroger and CHRISTUS Health.

“NCH and UD have a long history of excellent rapport, and this agreement will further the legacy of our relationship,” said University of Dallas Director of Corporate Relations and Partnerships Halley Netsch. “We're honored to support NCH employees pursuing higher education."
