NCC to Hold Grand Opening and Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting Celebration for the Health Science Building

It is an exciting time at Northwest Iowa Community College! The celebration of the grand opening and ribbon-cutting of the newly remodeled and expanded Health Science Building, Building H, will be held Thursday April 27 at 9:30am.

The Health Science Building was designed as a modern healthcare facility. The labs interconnect like those in a functioning hospital since interdisciplinary training is an essential component in our curricula. EMTs, CNAs, nurses, radiologic technologists, medical coders, etc., all learn their own disciplines, but they are also learning alongside their future peers.  By interacting with each other — just like in a real hospital setting – they are better prepared to excel as future health care professionals.

The labs feature state-of-the-art equipment, like high-fidelity manikins, which simulate realistic scenarios so students can practice their skills, implement clinical decision making, and evidence critical thinking in a safe and controlled environment – without risking harm to an actual patient.

Healthcare is an ever-evolving industry. It is vital, therefore, that NCC provides its students with opportunities that will give them the most realistic, up-to-date experiences.  NCC’s quality education ultimately improves patient care and outcomes, and this in turn improves the quality of life in northwest Iowa.

The celebration will include a Chamber of Commerce coffee along with remarks from representatives of NCC and the Sheldon Chamber of Commerce at 9:45am. Tours of the new facility that feature NCC students providing live high-fidelity manikin simulation demonstrations for the public will take place from 10:00am to 12pm. Refreshments will be served. The open house is open to the public and community members are encouraged to attend.

Join us for the open house celebration on Thursday, April 27 from 9:30am-12pm in the new Health Science Building, Building H.
