EVERETT, WA – A crane lowered the last piece of steel onto Everett Community College’s Nursing and Health Sciences building on June 6. The steel staircase will be part of the building’s atrium.
Construction began Sept. 14, 2011 on the three-story, $37.5 million facility, which will be home to the college’s nursing, medical assisting and phlebotomy programs and other health sciences training. The building will also include room for the Providence Everett Healthcare Clinic, now located across the street.
“The new Nursing and Health Sciences building strengthens the college’s ability to train the next generation of health care professionals for in-demand jobs caring for patients in our community,” said EvCC President David Beyer.
Opening in Spring 2013, the Nursing and Health Sciences building will replace EvCC’s Index Hall. Index’s east and west wings were constructed in 1968 and its north and south wings built in 1976.
The building will triple the amount of laboratory space for health sciences programs and include new technology to train healthcare professionals, such as the clinical simulation lab.
EvCC has educated nurses since the 1950s, and the college’s north Everett campus is home to the University Center of North Puget Sound, which offers University of Washington Bothell’s bachelor of science degree in nursing for registered nurses at EvCC’s campus.
EvCC Parking Lot G will be unavailable throughout the entire construction process.
The architect is SRG Partnership, Inc. of Seattle and the general contractor is Olympia-based Berschauer Phillips Construction Co., Inc.
