PARMA, Ohio, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Cuyahoga Community College will celebrate the grand opening of its new Health Technologies Center (HTC) Friday, April 4, from 9 a.m. -- noon at the Western Campus, 11000 West Pleasant Valley Road. Formal ceremonies are from 9 -- 9:45 a.m. in the HTC, and building tours will be conducted from 9:45 a.m. -- noon.
Covering 25,000-square-feet, the new Health Technologies Center includes four classrooms, six state-of-the-art labs and two patient simulators in a clinical setting. The new labs are designed for students in seven of Tri-C's renowned health career programs: diagnostic medical sonography, electroneurodiagnostic technology, nuclear medicine, polysomnography, physician assistant, and radiography. In addition, the Human Simulation Lab, a simulated emergency room with computerized patient simulators, is used in all the health careers programs.
"By having experience in the simulated clinical setting, our students will be better prepared as they enter the health profession," says Sandy L. Robinson, Associate Dean, Health Care Careers/Science. "They'll feel like they've already been on the job and it will give them a step up on students from other schools. This takes Tri-C to an outstanding level."
Paired with accredited programs, experienced instructors, and real-world curriculum, the facility's cutting-edge technology allows Tri-C to educate and train students to meet the ever-changing needs of the health industry.
This celebration is free and open to the public. Those who wish to attend should RSVP by Friday, March 28, by phone at (216) 987-5135, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please park in the "A" Lot off of York Road. Disabled parking is available in the "D" Lot.
