Central Oregon CC Health Careers Building

Over the past decade, health careers-related programs have doubled in size at COCC. The new Health Careers Building consolidates these programs under one 45,000 sf roof, provides up-to-date classrooms and labs, and serves as a bridge linking both upper and lower campus and the college to the community. In addition to providing learning spaces for the college, the Health Careers Building will also offer recurring dental and massage therapy clinics to the larger community. To embrace this dual role, the layout of the building is designed to be welcoming and intuitive to both frequent users and first-time visitors. A large, two-story lobby is located at the center of the facility, directly adjacent to public parking and a covered drop-off area. This space serves both as the heart of the building and as a reception/waiting area during clinic days.
