A dream of Mary Baldwin College became reality Thursday as the institution broke ground on the future site of the Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences off Goose Creek Road.
The 52,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to open in two years. The college’s doctor of physical therapy and doctor of occupational therapy programs will start in 2014. A master of physician assistant studies program will begin in 2015.
But, for now, grading work is taking place on the 30-acre site.
