NECC Invites the Community to Tour the New El-Hefni Allied Health & Technology Center in Lawrence
The community is invited to tour Northern Essex Community College’s newest facility, the El-Hefni Allied Health & Technology Center, located at 414 Common Street in Lawrence, on Saturday, April 5 from 10 a.m. to noon.
The $27.4 million El Hefni Health and Technology Center houses the majority of the college’s more than 20 health care associate degrees and certificates, including respiratory care, sleep technology, emergency medical technology, and nursing.
The 44,000 square foot facility features a Health Education Simulation Center, where health care students receive hands-on experience in simulated environments such as a hospital intensive care unit, a trauma room, an acute care hospital room, an apartment, an ambulance, and a doctor’s office. The building also includes classrooms and computer labs and a Career Planning and Advising Center where students will receive academic and career counseling.
At the open house, visitors can tour the building and learn about academic programs and financial aid options.
Architects Miller Dyer Spears—who also designed the Hartleb Technology Center on the college’s Haverhill Campus—designed the three-story contemporary structure, featuring sleek silver accents. It is a silver LEED project that takes full advantage of the sun as a source of energy.
