He is so passionate about encouraging more health care professionals into the community and residential care settings that he sponsors the Roleto and Amparo Ordona Endowed Scholarship in Nursing for Community-Based Senior Care in honor and memory of his parents. He is also a founding donor to the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing.
