UNLV School of Medicine breaks ground on new campus
UNLV School of Medicine held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday for its medical education building — its first permanent facility.
Officials are expecting the approximately 135,000-square-foot, five-story building will be ready to occupy in summer 2022.
“That is really about three years ahead of schedule,” UNLV School of Medicine Dean Dr. Marc Kahn told the Review-Journal on Wednesday.
Kahn cited work by the Nevada Health and Bioscience Corp., which is overseeing the project, and a better availability of materials and workers due to COVID-19-related economic impacts as factors in moving forward sooner than expected.
