A new health sciences facility in Morehead will soon be constructed through a partnership of Morehead State University (MSU), the University of Kentucky (UK) and St. Claire Regional Medical Center (SCR).

The facility will house MSU's departments of nursing and imaging sciences, UK's physician assistant and family nurse practitioner programs, in addition to a freestanding primary care clinic, and comprehensive health education center.

The clinic will serve as the primary training site for the SCR/UK family practice residency program and will include examination rooms, a dental suite, as well as provide for a clinical laboratory and basic radiology services. The comprehensive health education center will be designed to accommodate a wide range of continuing education/workshop programs, teleconferencing and telemedicine initiatives, specialized professional development/enrichment opportunities for health-care providers, and rural health research activities.

The space for MSU's departments of nursing and imaging sciences would include lecture and laboratory classrooms to support the associate and baccalaureate degree nursing programs, the radiologic technology program, and the sonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance program options. Also included would be faculty/staff offices and conference areas. In addition, discussion with UK continues regarding other possible educational training programs to be located at the Center.

Additionally, space will be provided for anticipated growth in these programs and the planned implementation of MSU's new master's degrees in nursing and in nuclear medicine. Similar space will be available to support UK's master's-level programs for physician assistant and family nurse practitioner.

Proposed space for the center will include multi-purpose classrooms, meeting rooms, auditorium, medical library, a wellness facility, and administrative offices.
