JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The Board of Trustees for the Institutions of Higher Learning gave a thumbs up to UMMC to begin the bond process for a new teaching facility in Ridgeland.
Board members met in a special called meeting Tuesday to discuss the plan for the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
The land for the facility is located at the intersection of Colony Park Boulevard and I-55 Frontage Road. The 36-acre facility will be used as a teaching campus but could also include a medical office building and ambulatory surgical center.
The price cannot exceed $110 million. UMMC acquired the land in November 2021 to increase what they called academic opportunities for students and trainees. The new facility will be approximately 131 thousand square feet.
