On Aug. 23, Randolph Community College in Asheboro held a ground-breaking ceremony for the new Allied Health Center, the Courier Tribune reports.
The college is building a two-story, 45,000-sq.-ft. facility that will be home to the associate degree in nursing, radiography, medical assisting and emergency medical services programs.
The $14.5-million project calls for the construction of an L-shaped building that will be equipped with video capture capabilities. The facility will be equipped with a simulated health care community, a simulated hospital with an ICU room, a maternity room, nursing stations, radiography labs, exam rooms and much more. It will also be home to a simulated apartment for home health care and for emergency services training, according to the Tribune.
Construction – which is starting August 27 – will take approximately 18 months to complete. The RCC plans a ribbon cutting in early 2020.
