Please join us for our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Health Science Technology Center on Tuesday, March 26, 2013(rain or shine). Ceremony will begin at 4:00pm and will conclude at approximately 4:30pm. The College will host a Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce Business Card Exchange in the new building following the Ribbon Cutting at 5:00pm.

Johnson College broke ground on the Health Science Technology Center project on September 20, 2011. Through an academic and master planning process, the College determined that a new building dedicated to health science was needed in order to offer technology-based academic programs in emerging health science fields. With the aging of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s population and related healthcare needs, plus the impact of the new medical college in Scranton, employers will be seeking a larger pool of highly skilled personnel in health science fields.

The first program to be housed in the new building is a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Program. PTAs assist a Physical Therapist in delivering therapies to the patient and help patients with exercises and other therapeutic treatments. The first class is planned to start in Fall 2013, pending all approvals from associated accrediting agencies.

To finance this new building as well as potential new degree programs, Johnson College is raising money through its first-ever Capital Campaign – the Next Century Campaign. The total goal is $4.5 million. To date, approximately 80% of the goal has been raised, which includes a $1.5 million Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program matching grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Thus far, the Health Science Technology Center is the largest project in the College’s history. Come celebrate this noteworthy achievement with us!
