Robert M. Rogers Nursing & Health Sciences Center Construction Update 1-22-14

TYLER, January 22, 2014—Tyler Junior College is in the process of the largest construction project in the college’s history with the construction of the Robert M. Rogers Nursing and Health Sciences Center.

The Center will host TJC’s nursing program, as well as other Allied Health programs such as the EMT program, surgical technology, medical lab technology, and four new programs which will be added in within the next two years.

The 155,000 square feet building will be 4 stories tall. The project’s price tag is approximately $50 million dollars. More than half of the building funds came from an approved tax revenue bond which was approved in May, of 2012. The other half of the funding will come from private donations and student fees.

Construction began with a ground breaking ceremony in August, 2012, and is expected to be completed in December of this year.

KYYK’s Gary Richards spoke with TJC Director of Public Affairs and Grant Development Fred Peters about the new addition and how it will meet the region’s growing medical needs. Click below for more.
