The new Center for Health Sciences facility at the Milledgeville campus of Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) is complete and now administrators anticipate the final furniture delivery, which includes faculty office furniture, to come in by Saturday, April 27.

‘About 75 percent of the equipment and furniture will in place Friday and the other 25 percent will be in place by May 1,’ said Hank Griffeth, CGTC vice president of satellite operations.

Classes will begin in the $17 million facility in late May for the start of summer semester. The three-story building will house health care programs and workforce training, along with the expansion of the student center, library and bookstore. Several new programs will be introduced to the campus, including pharmacy technology, neuromuscular therapy and health care specialist classes.

‘Additional new programs for the campus will begin in the fall due to the merger with [Middle Georgia Technical College] and the [Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges] accreditation,’ Griffeth said.

Interested members of the community wanting to tour the building can do so after May 1 by contacting the school at 478-445-2300.
