Healthcare Occupations Center Grand Opening set for Aug. 16
LBCC President Dr. Greg Hamann and Dr. Larry Mullins with Samaritan Health Services will speak at a ribbon cutting ceremony starting at 10 a.m., with an open house taking place from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The center is located at 250 N. 5th St. in Lebanon, adjacent to COMP-NW Medical School.
The state-of-the-art 42,000 square foot facility brings LBCC healthcare programs into one learning space, providing greater opportunity for collaboration between programs and sharing of resources.
LBCC’s Diagnostic Imaging program was the first to move in June, with classes already in session. The remainder of healthcare programs are moving in over the summer with a fall term start.
LBCC healthcare programs include diagnostic imaging, nursing, nursing assistant, medical assistant, coding and reimbursement specialist, dental assistant, polysomnographic technician, phlebotomy, pharmacy technician and occupational therapy assistant.
Construction was made possible through $8 million in bond funds approved by voters in 2014, and $8 million in state matching funds.
