The construction team is working to finish the move into the new Human Health Building, scheduled for completion Sept. 21. Home to both nursing and physical therapy, the new, eco-friendly facility provides more resources for students.
“Health science and physical therapy are big programs in high demand,” said Colette O’Connor, officer of development. “For schools to grow, they need space and facility for students. In such a growing field that provides high employment, there is a clear urgency of educating the students.”
Costs for the building and equipment were estimated at more than $60 million, according to Gary Moore, associate dean of nursing and Cheryl McPherson, assistant dean of finance.
