The heart for future healthcare professionals
Owens Community College is excited to support labor demands across the region by providing highly-skilled healthcare professionals from a new nursing and health professions education center. Construction is under way with some programs starting classes in the north end of the center by Fall 2024 and the entire center completed for Spring 2025.
The $31.3 million center will be located on the east side of the Toledo-area Campus in the buildings formerly known as the Library and Audio/Visual Classroom Center. The square footage will feature 65,250 in renovated square footage and 21,300 in new additions to the footprint, providing students with more than 86,500 of square footage as they pursue rewarding careers in healthcare.
The School of Nursing and Health Professions will relocate from three existing buildings into the new education center and continue to fulfill Owens’ approach of interprofessional education (IPE), where healthcare graduates are well-trained to practice collaboratively and provide patient-centered care to members of the community.

Dental Hygiene and Assisting Labs

Owens has been educating dental professionals since 1973 and, in an effort to continue to meet the high demand for these valuable jobs, Owens has begun construction on a new, standard-setting Dental Lab on our Toledo-area Campus.
The new space will include 25 state-of-the-art dental hygiene stations, 8 dental assisting stations, 4 radiology rooms and an equipment sterilization area that will allow Owens to train the dental professionals of the future.
