ECU Health Sciences Building Opens

ECU's new $66,000 health sciences building officially opened Friday.

The four-story building, close to Pitt County Memorial Hospital, houses the School of Allied Health Sciences, the Laupus Library and the School of Nursing.

The 303,000-square-foot facility was made possible by a more than $3 billion statewide higher education facilities bond referendum passed in November 2000.

At the time it was the largest voter approved bond program for higher education in the United States.
