UPJ receives $4 million for new building

Pitt-Johnstown has received $4 million in state funds for the construction of a nursing and health sciences building. This is the largest appropriation earmarked specifically for Pitt-Johnstown in nearly 20 years.

UPJ President Jem Spectar remarked, “This funding makes it possible for the Johnstown campus to build upon its existing capacity and expertise in allied health care programs and nursing to develop and intensify cooperative partnerships with local health care providers.”

The commonwealth is experiencing a shortage of workers in the health care area, which is expected to intensify, Spectar added.
