A community college gets a big boost to build a new health-sciences building, a $1 million donation from a local hospital.
Pitt County Memorial Hospital's board voted unanimously to give the big gift to Pitt Community College.
The hospital says PCC is an important source for newly train health-care professionals. In the last year about half of the new hires at PCMH in hard-to-fill health care positions came from PCC.
The new two-story health sciences building is being funded by both public and private money. PCC expects it to cost about $6.5 million. The college says it still needs $1.7 million for the new facility.
