The Medical Center-WKU Health Sciences Complex

On June 13, The Medical Center in Bowling Green, KY celebrated the groundbreaking of a new 73,471 square foot, three-story facility on the hospital's campus.  This new facility will house the university's nursing and physical therapy programs and to provide educational space for the hospital. The facility will be named The Medical Center-WKU Health Sciences Complex.

The project will address the national nursing shortage by providing much needed space for WKU to expand its program and double the number of students who can enroll in the university's nursing program. Eighty percent of the facility will be used by WKU to accommodate assembly, training, classroom and business functions for WKU. The remaining 20 percent will be used by The Medical Center for an auditorium and bed labs for clinical training.

The Medical Center will issue bonds to pay for construction. WKU will lease the facility from The Medical Center for 25 years, income from which will be used toward debt service and operating expenses.  The facility will be located at 700 First Avenue on the edge of the hospital's campus that borders 31W Bypass. The project is estimated to be completed by the 2013 fall semester at WKU.
