[Source: University of Arizona] – The Arizona Legislature’s Joint Committee on Capital Review (JCCR) has included on its March 23 agenda a review of the 268,000-square-foot Health Sciences Education Building (HSEB), part of the planned expansion of The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix in partnership with Arizona State University in downtown Phoenix. The $187 million expansion of the Phoenix Biomedical Campus – supported by lottery and university dollars, not by the general fund – requires review by the JCCR before the project can break ground.

“We would like to thank House Speaker Kirk Adams for his leadership in helping to see this project through, and Representative Kavanagh, chair of JCCR, for assigning this tri-university project for review,” said Ernest Calderon, President of the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR). “We are one step closer to training much-needed physicians and health-care professionals in Arizona with expanded facilities at the Phoenix Biomedical Campus.”
