The $15 million state-of-the-art Victor K. Phillips Nursing and Allied Health Building is the centerpiece of the largest construction project in BC3 history and is expected to open for the fall 2023 semester.

BC3, in early August 2021, razed its century-old shipping and receiving building, and its 28-year-old maintenance building, as part of a $21 million south campus project and in preparation for the construction of the Phillips building.

The facility will provide an immersive learning environment with a hospital-like interior featuring simulated medical-surgery and ICU rooms, said Brian Opitz, BC3’s executive director of operations.
