FRAMINGHAM – MassBay Community College announced that it now has been awarded $25 Million from Governor Charlie Baker to invest in a new MassBay Health Science Center in Framingham.
MassBay was awarded $15 in the most current bond bill, and $10 million in a previous bill.
“It has been a long-standing priority of mine to establish a permanent MassBay campus in Framingham,” said Senator Karen E. Spilka (D-Ashland), Chair of the Senate Ways and Means Committee. “After advocating for it for several years, I am thrilled that money is being allocated through this bond authorization. This investment inMassBay’s allied health facility in Framingham is an important step in our continued work to bolster health and life sciences education in MetroWest, and in shoring up a vital institution of higher education in our region.”
“We are very grateful to Governor Baker and the Legislature for their generous investment and commitment to our College,” said MassBay President Dr. David Podell, in a press release.“This funding will allow MassBay to not only strengthen our Health Sciences programs by investing in a permanent location in Framingham, but it will continue to allow us to meet workforce demands of the MetroWest region.”
MassBay Community College currently leases the Farley School building, owned by the City of Framingham, for our Health Sciences programs.
The new facility is expected to be built on Franklin Street, although MassBay has not confirmed any details.
