Tift Regional teams up with ABAC

October 19, 2004

Tifton- Tift Regional Medical Center has given Abraham Baldwin College a million dollars to help construct a new health sciences building.

The hospital will also staff some of it's physicians at the college to help teach and mentor the students as they complete their nursing program.

"You don't have nurses you don't provide good healthcare. I think that ABAC has done an exceptional job with the limited facilities that they've had. Just think with these new facilities they're going to be able to do that much better," says Tift Regional President and CEO William Richardson.

The new ABAC health sciences building is scheduled to open in two years and will cost nearly $8.7 million dollars to complete.
