Texas Tech Adds Nursing Building to MCA

The Medical Center of the Americas (MCA) will be adding a new building to its campus soon with the approval of a nursing school building by the Texas Tech University Board of Regents. The board approved the $11 Million building for the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing’s Traditional Bachelor of Science Degree and Second Degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs. The $11 Million is a gift from the nonprofit MCA Foundation.

According to the MCA's news digest, "The Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing is currently operating on leased space in downtown El Paso. The new 25,000-square-foot building will contain classrooms, specialized labs, faculty offices, support space, specialized training equipment and public art."

The MCA Master Plan shows the Nursing School's future location at the northeast corner of Alberta Avenue and Concepcion Street, across the street from the Paul Foster School of Medicine's Medical Education Building I. No timeline has been given for construction of the project.

The Nursing School is abbreviated here as GGHSON.
