In the News: Chicago Tribune — “Triton College unveils new health and sciences building”

Here’s a snippet from the Chicago Tribune article about the grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony of Triton College’s new Health and Sciences Facility on Sept. 29:

A brand new medical facility is now open at Triton College, offering technology and resources that school officials believe will prepare students for medical careers better than ever.

The college’s new $16 million Health and Science Facility, which occupies the college’s H Building on the northwest side of Triton’s campus, offers traditional classrooms for medical-related courses, but also new spaces for hands-on and simulated instruction.

Triton College Board Chairman Mark Stephens said it took a while to get the funding needed to start the project. About 75 percent of the new facility was paid for by a grant.

“It’s a very exciting day that we have long anticipated,” he said.

He pointed to a large group of students at the ceremony wearing medical uniforms.

“That’s really the reason why we’re here today,” he said.

Triton College Board Vice Chairman Donna Peluso said the students are excited about the improvements made to the 70,000-square-foot building.

“It’s amazing,” she said. “We waited a long time for this. It’s state of the art. The kids are so excited and this is what it’s all about.”
