Construction Update for the Patient Centered Care Learning Center

The School of Medicine's new Patient Centered Care Learning Center is set to be open in August 2017. University staff, students and workers celebrated the 'topping off' of the building in July 2016. The 'topping off' marked the end of the buildings vertical construction and attendees were able to sign the last beam hoisted on the building. In September, concrete was laid in the interior. Pipes and stairs have also installed in the new building. October brought electrical work and bricks being laid. Despite the weather turning cold, construction continues. Currently workers are installing glass, putting up drywall, and installing elevators. 

This project will allow thirty-two additional medical students to be admitted to MU every year, starting in August 2017. The school hypothesises that the project will add 300 physicians to Missouri and an annual $390 million to Missouri's economy. Watch the 97,088 square feet be completed in real time!

On Friday evening, August 7, the atrium doors on the west side of the Medical School Addition will close, and will remain closed until the completion of the Patient Centered Care Learning Center .
Access from the west will be available through the Medical Science Building during construction.
The north entrance will remain open as usual throughout construction.
