Fox Valley Technical College broke ground on its first new construction project as part of passing of a $66.5 million public referendum on April 3. The 60,000-plus square-foot Health Simulation & Technology Center was the focal point of a ceremonial groundbreaking event on Tuesday at the northeast corner of FVTC’s Appleton campus.

The three-story facility will serve as a virtual hospital setting for current students in FVTC’s health-related and emergency medical services programs, in addition to a continuous education resource for area health care organizations. The training environment will feature high-tech human patient simulators of all ages that provide best practice training for nurses, medical assistants, dental professional, paramedics, occupational therapy assistants, and other health care practitioners.

This integrated facility is among the first of its kind in the region. It will also house computer labs to complement expansion of the college’s New Health Information Technology program, along with space to support FVTC’s therapy programs and home health aide and personal care training.

Nearly 100 people attended the ceremony, including many supporters of the referendum and partners of the various industries impacted by this project. The new facility, which carries an estimated cost of $11.7 million, is expected to open in fall of 2013.

FVTC passed the public referendum by nearly a 2-1 margin. MORE INFO ON PROJECTS>>>
