ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Finger Lakes Community College has broken ground on its “Sands Center for Allied Health.”

This $7.2 million project will allow the college to expand the number of students it accepts into its registered nursing program. It will also allow FLCC to add a licensed practical nursing program.

“Through this physical transformation, we’ll support high level of care that FLCC graduates provide in our hospitals, medical officers and skilled nursing facilities.” President Dr. Robert Nye said.

This first phase of the project is set to be complete before classes begin at the end of August.
The remainder will open in phases throughout the academic year.
