2000s - Age of Information and Expansion

​Technology takes off and new facilities added

In 2004 the opening of the Health Education Center created two clinics within the center, a medical clinic and a dental clinic, see patients on a regular basis. “The clinics were necessary to provide the clinical experiences for the many diverse health care occupations,” Bill says.

A surge of new health care programs were added: Surgical Technologist, Medical Assistant, Medication Assistant, Respiratory Care, Renal Dialysis Technician, Respiratory Therapist, Pharmacy Technician, Therapeutic Massage, Medical Office Specialist, Medical Coding Specialist, Central Services, Cardiovascular Technology, and Physical Therapist Assistant.
