The 40,000 square-foot, $9.7 million Wellness Center officially opened on Wednesday, January 5, 2011. Construction of the facility, which began in November 2009, brings the total number of buildings on our 655-acre campus to 36. The facility was designed by WTW Architects of Pittsburgh. Carnegie-based TEDCO served as the general contractor.
