New Building To Come To SCC

Written by Anna Greiner on January 16, 2015

There will be a new Health Professions Center at SCC’s West Burlington campus. At the January meeting, the Board of Trustees gave the go-ahead to proceed with construction. Bi-state contrating of West Burlington and DLR Group of Des Moines are helming the project. The $10 million facility will house all of SCC’s health professions program. That includes nursing, respiratory therapy, medical coding and billing, medical assistant and certified nurse aid. It will be a two-story with patient simulation labs, multimedia classrooms and an ambulance simulation lab. Construction begins in March and is part of SCC’s “Building the Dream” facility expansion and is the first large-scale building initiative at the college since the mid-90’s.
