New Health Sciences Center Open at Rose State College

More than 300 students from a variety of health-related majors will attend classes in a new, state-of-the-art Health Sciences Center at the Rose State College Campus beginning this semester.
Students, faculty and staff from Nursing, Radiologic Technology, Health Information Technology, Respiratory Therapy, Clinical Laboratory Technology and other health-related majors will join Rose State President Dr. Terry Britton at the building’s Grand Opening January 21, along with dignitaries and guests.
The new facility, designed by The Benham Companies and built by Atlas General Contractors, both of Oklahoma City, is located on the campus of Rose State College in Midwest City, near the intersection of Interstate 40 and Hudiburg Drive. The approximately 47,000 square-foot, single-story building is designed for teaching and training students in the provision of health services.
Health care students from Rose State spend thousands of hours per semester in area hospitals, clinics and other health facilities as part of their clinical education experience, helping alleviate the shortage of providers in central Oklahoma’s health care infrastructure, said Rose State President Dr. Terry Britton.
“With this state alone facing a shortage of thousands of health care professionals in the coming decade, this new facility will provide badly-needed capability for better health care in Oklahoma,” said President Britton. “We are grateful not only for this facility but also for the opportunity to put more health care professionals into service.”

 

The grand opening of the Rose State College Health Sciences Center will be Thursday, January 21, 2010, 2:30 p.m. at the Rose State Campus. Following remarks there will be a tour of the facility. Informative materials and refreshments will be provided for guests.
Current Guests include:
Jari Askins, Lt. Gov. of Oklahoma
Glen Johnson, Chancellor, Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education
Betty J.C. Wright, Chairman, Rose State College Board of Regents
Dr. Terry Britton, President, Rose State College
Students, faculty and staff from Nursing, Radiologic Technology, Health Information Technology, Respiratory Therapy, Clinical Laboratory Technology and other health-related majors will also attend the the building’s Grand Opening January 21, along with dignitaries and guests.
