BB&T Names Surgery/Trauma Unit in RCC’s Simulated Hospital
Rockingham Community College will honor BB&T for its financial commitment of $100,000 to Building Futures: A Campaign for Advanced Healthcare Education by naming the Surgery/Trauma I unit of the simulated hospital.
Renovations are planned to begin by the fall of 2013 for the N. Jerry Owen’s Human Services Building that will combine all of the college’s health science programs for a state-of-the-art interdisciplinary learning experience.
BB&T Market President for Rockingham County, Mark Collins, said, “Part of BB&T's mission is to 'make the communities we serve better places to live' and we firmly believe the simulated hospital will provide an enhanced learning environment for RCC’s students and will better prepare them for the workforce.”
“We appreciate BB&T’s contribution to our health sciences program,” said Dr. Michael S. Helmick, president of RCC.” “BB&T continues to be a strong supporter of the college and we are grateful for their commitment to education in Rockingham County.”
Estimated costs of the simulated hospital renovation project are $3.8 million. Funding is being sought from private donors and grants. For more information on the, contact Capital Campaign Assistant Jeanette Webb at (336) 342-4261, ext. 2016
