ST. LOUIS — Students, professors and drivers on Highway 40 (Interstate 64) will get a new first impression of St. Louis Community College at Forest Park as the Center for Nursing and Health Sciences building officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday.
Chancellor Jeff Pittman has said the $39 million project is not just a new building, but a modern entry way and “front door” to the campus that opened in 1966 on Oakland Avenue. It also addresses the urgent needs of the community, with a burgeoning demand for health care professionals as the population ages.
COLUMBIA, Mo. — The University of Missouri System and Siemens Healthineers announced Friday a 10-year partnership to boost Missouri-based research and improve health outcomes.
The goal, the two entities said in a news release, is to "transform the way health care is delivered in Missouri and beyond." The partnership is called the Alliance for Precision Health, and includes Siemens delivering "advanced medical imaging equipment" to the Columbia campus.
