State board approves $7.4 million for medical college campuses

The Wisconsin Building Commission approved $7.4 million for renovations, remodeling and technology upgrades at two new regional Medical College of Wisconsin campuses, proposed for the Green Bay and Wausau areas.

The Milwaukee-based college plans to open both operations in 2015.

Each community-based campus, including one at St. Norbert College in De Pere, will train at least 25 new students per year to address Wisconsin's impending physician shortage. According to a recent report by the Wisconsin Hospital Association, Wisconsin needs to train or recruit 100 new doctors a year to keep up with demand.

Officials have said that each new campus would cost about $11 million to build and about $3.5 million a year to operate.

The proposal will be considered by the full State Legislature as part of the two-year state budget bill.
