It’s a brand new program designed to educate the next generation of healthcare professionals.
News10NBC was on the campus of Nazareth College Friday morning where the college's president and some major donors announced the funding and plans of a new $16.5-million institute at the school.
The Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute, which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2014, will expand the existing facilities of the college's Health and Human Services school.
College officials say the new institute will be a huge benefit for everyone involved.
Nazareth College President Daan Braveman said, “It’s great for our students, it’s wonderful training but it’s great for the community as well.”
The project will be funded in part by a $6.5-million gift from a group of donors to the college.
