University plans to lease former Mid-State facility
The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point would expand existing health and wellness educational programs and partner to offer a new doctorate of physical therapy program if plans progress to lease the former Mid-State Technical College facility. The first step for a proposed Center for Healthy Communities was taken when the Stevens Point Common Council agreed to move forward with UW-Stevens Point’s proposal to lease the city-owned former MSTC facility. Along with providing opportunities for our students, this building will bring health and wellness resources to the community and develop a stronger health care workforce in Central and Northcentral Wisconsin.
