Vancouver, BC – Vancouver Community College’s new $56.4 million health sciences building, with state-of-the-art classrooms, training labs for lab assistants, nursing, resident care attendant, and other health programs, has officially opened.

The building is providing a cutting-edge facility to teach health-care students with simulated hospital wards and pharmacies, giving students hands-on experience in a realistic setting.

“We are very proud of the work we have done for many years in the area of training graduates for the health sector,” said Dale Dorn, president of the Vancouver Community College. “The addition of this wonderful facility allows us to increase the numbers of graduates and the quality of their educational experience. We are grateful for the support of the provincial government and that of our many donors.”

The facility features 24 labs along with 36 classrooms, offices and student spaces.
