mcphsnewbldgsmYesterday the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences opened their new $10 million academic center in Worcester.  The new building next to the DCU center is another step in the expansion that MCPHS has done in the Worcester/Central Mass area.

Colleges are a big part of the Worcester economy and this expansion is more than welcome during these challenging economic times.  Worcester City Official including Mayor Lukes and City Manager O’Brien attended the opening ceremony.

It was nice to hear remarks from President Monahan emphasizing the importance of the Worcester area in their growth plans.  He stated:

“Much of the College’s future growth is in Worcester, and we appreciate the cooperation from both the local government and business community to help this state-of-the-art facility become a reality,” President Monahan said. “With its top-notch hospitals, clinical sites and higher education institutions, this new facility is just one more reason why Worcester is such an attractive place to live, learn and stay.”

The building is a great visual addition to downtown Worcester.  In May I was taking pictures of the area and this is what the building looked like then:
