University of Saint Francis Crown Point celebrates expansion

CROWN POINT, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — Officials from the University of Saint Francis have cut the ribbon on an expansion of the university’s Crown Point location. The ceremony celebrated the $7 million project, which doubled the size of the facility with the help of a grant from Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment Inc. and donations.

The new facility will house several programs, including Surgical Technology, Radiologic Technology, Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Advanced Medical Imaging.

“We are conscious of the Lord blessing all the hard work that has been put into this building. This building will allow time together to understand how better to learn, how better to come together and how better to help God’s children in healthcare,” said USF President Reverend Dr. Eric Albert Zimmer.

USF Crown Point says expectations are that the expansion will double enrollment in the coming years.
