In The Region:

The Northeast Ohio Medical University has completed an $82 million dollar expansion.  Two new buildings opened Monday on NEOMED’s Rootstown campus. 

The ‘village’ provides on-campus housing for the first time.  And the school’s graduate and research program is now housed in a new 80,000 square foot facility.

NEOMED president Jay Gershen says the expansion makes room for new ventures.

“This space will allow 10 start-up companies to utilize NEOMED facilities and the expertise of NEOMED faculty to begin commercialization process for biomedical inventions.  This is a job creator and a testament to our commitment of private / public partnerships.” 

NEOMED will open a $70 million fitness and rehabilitation center next year in collaboration with Akron General Health System. 

The 40 year-old medical school last year added a STEM high school to its campus.
