MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) — A Muskegon college has opened an $8 million health science center to train health care providers in a simulated operating room and radiology suite.
Baker College held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its 35,000-square-foot facility this week. President Lee Coggin says it will bring together all of the college's health programs, provide advanced learning opportunities and address projected enrollment growth.
The center's laboratories also simulate a hospital wing, a doctor's office and a patient-care room. A mock apartment also allows students to use equipment that assists seniors and disabled patients.
About 40 percent of the private college's 5,000 students are enrolled in health sciences programs.
