Creighton University is expanding far outside of Omaha with a new almost $100 million health sciences campus in the heart of Phoenix, according to a release.
The first phase of the project includes a building that'll be 200,000 square feet and will one day house nearly 800 Creighton students.
The expansion will also add a four-year medical school, nursing school, occupational and physical therapy schools, pharmacy school, physician assistant school and an emergency medical services program. In the future, there will also be a second building.
Construction begins in spring of 2019 and will be completed in the spring of 2021.
The Creighton School of Medicine first came to Phoenix in 2009.
