II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: During the 2017 legislature, CSN/NSC were approved for $3,390,987 of legislative funding and have provided an additional $1,000,000 to plan and design a 70,000-square-foot building located on the CSN Henderson Campus. The funding provided the necessary fees to hire an architect and a CMAR to complete the construction documents for the facility. CSN/NSC is currently engaged in this process and will be complete prior to the 2019 legislature. During the upcoming legislative session, CSN will be requesting the funding for the construction of the facility as well as the necessary furniture, fixtures and equipment. The facility is envisioned to include: 1) SIM Center space, 2) joint-use classrooms, and 3) labs and offices. The project would require additional site parking and it is recommended that it include an extension of the central pedestrian circulation path connecting the new building to existing facilities and outdoor student gathering areas.
17. Project Justification: Southern Nevada postsecondary students experience bottle necks to enroll and complete health science courses and labs. A joint-use health sciences facility, which is also located next to Foothill High School, providing pipeline enrollment opportunities, will expand capacity for CSN and NSC and allow more students to effectively enter and complete healthcare training programs. The new facility will enable CSN to provide academic healthsciences programs not currently available at the Henderson campus, including anatomy and physiology courses and certain allied health programming. The recommended extension of the central pedestrian circulation path connecting the new building to existing facilities and outdoor student gathering areas are important to address access and provide critical study and meeting spaces for students.
18. Project Background Information: The City of Henderson’s thriving medical industry is expanding. A 170-acre, master-planned healthcare complex, Union Village, will be constructed in multiple phases, including the Henderson Hospital a 142-bed facility which opened in October 2016. The entire project is expected to create approximately 17,000 indirect, direct and induced new jobs, 700 alone for the Valley Health System-operated Henderson Hospital. Additional development in the area includes Dignity Health’s recent completion of the expansion of the Siena Campus and the 27,000-square-foot Dignity Health Medical Pavilion at Galleria. The College of Southern Nevada (CSN) and Nevada State College (NSC) are well known for graduating high quality healthcare professionals with high licensure pass rates. The two colleges enjoy a long history of collaborative academic and student support programs designed to facilitate a student’s progress through the associate to bachelor’s degree and then placement into a meaningful career. The colleges’ many partnerships and the proximity of CSN’s Henderson campus and NSC (less than four miles apart) provide an ideal platform from which to tackle the growing need for highly trained healthcare technicians throughout Southern Nevada.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced: N/A
19b. Year existing equipment was installed: N/A

19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? No
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.): N/A
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? No
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): This facility is geared towards anticipating the need for qualified individuals for the burgeoning medical services community in Henderson. Without an educational facility supported by both CSN and NSC, the area will not be able to provide the workforce necessary to manage this industry growth. Currently, health care providers are having to look outside of Nevada for a qualified workforce.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
22. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): N/A
23. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
23a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
23b. Explain: N/A
23c. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? Yes
23d. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 2020
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? This project is being driven by the growth in Henderson City and Southern Nevada medical professions as well as the demand for additional science classes at the Henderson campus which the College currently can not accommodate due to lack of laboratory space.
