Academic instruction at the Milledgeville campus of Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) has not been hindered with since construction to its new $17 million Center for Health Sciences facility kicked off July 2011.
Located adjacent to the main building, the new three-story, 70,000 square-foot facility will house health care programs, customized industry training, a versatile conference space, an expanded library, a Workforce Development Center, an Academic Success Center, an information technology area for all four CGTC campuses, and faculty and administrative offices.
Once all current medical programs housed in the main building, including medical assisting, practical nursing and medical skin care, move to the new building, the available space will provide for the potential of program expansion.
Several new programs will be introduced to the local campus, including pharmacy technology and clinical laboratory technology. The neuromuscular therapy and health care specialist classes will also be offered for the first time to CGTC.
CGTC is expected to take possession of the building from contractor Chris R. Sheridan in early January 2013 before furniture and equipment is moved in, and classes are held starting in the summer.
