Murray State College announces ribbon-cutting ceremony for new health science building

10/26/2017

  Murray State College will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, November 3, 2017, for its new health science building.  The public is invited to join state legislators and college personnel for the 10 a.m. ceremony at the building’s entrance on the Tishomingo campus. 

Expansion and renovation of the Nursing and Allied Health Building (now Health Science) began in 2011. Funded primarily by the Southern Oklahoma Memorial Foundation and the Chickasaw Nation, this facility added approximately 32,000 new square feet to the existing 13,000 square- foot facility for a total building size of 45,000 square feet. 

The facility houses existing programs of Nursing, Physical Therapist Assistant, Occupational Therapy Assistant and Early Child Development.   By expanding the space, Murray State College was afforded the opportunity for more capacity in those programs as well as space for new programs that may be added in the future.  A third-floor option added approximately 9,000 additional square feet of basement space for a wellness facility and program or storm shelter space for students.

The new building opened in May of 2017, and renovations to complete the expansion are underway.
