McKINNEY - The Collin College's Central Park Campus in McKinney plans to become the region's health science destination with the addition of a three-story, 125,000-sf health science hub located on 2200 West University Dr.

A state-of-the-art hospital lab, expanded clinical space, meeting spaces and an 850-seat conference area are also included in the plans.

With the addition of the health science building, Collin College will be able to take in more students to expand the program and remedy a projected shortage of 71,000 nurses and 39,000 family doctors in 2016, according to Lisa Vasquez, spokesperson for the college.

Construction will start in April 2014 and is set to be complete in 2015.
