|Plans take shape for Bismarck Center for Family Medicine|
In 2009, the North Dakota Legislature appropriated $5.4 million to the School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) to construct a new facility for its Bismarck Center for Family Medicine and Southwest Campus offices. The SMHS has selected Ritterbush-Ellig-Hulsing of Bismarck as the architects and planners for the project.
The SMHS solicited advice on a potential building site from the community, the City of Bismarck, Medcenter One and St. Alexius Medical Center. The SMHS appreciates the helpful and positive community contributions that will lead to a favorable location for the facility. The center will benefit the medical student and residency training programs of the SMHS and ultimately the citizens of Bismarck and the surrounding area. In the near future, the SMHS will choose the site for the building, which it hopes to complete and occupy by July 2011.
