St. Clair County Community College (SC4) will unveil the new health sciences building to the public this week. Construction on the $9.8 million Capital Outlay project began last summer and was finalized to open for students in August. The building features an innovative hospital simulation wing, ambulance bay, home setting, and more highly-developed manikins.
The building, along with the state-of-the-art equipment, will mainly function to help prepare students with realistic scenarios and training. According to SC4, the renovated facility will accelerate the expansion of programs while also allowing for a more interdisciplinary approach to patient care, and serving more students through advanced teaching systems. The community is invited to the Grand Opening Celebration beginning at 11 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 27. For the public opening, visitors will be able to see health care simulations in action, learn about college programs offered and get an up-close look at new training equipment.
