The Sage Colleges received a $40,000 Empire State Development grant to support the addition of a second Health Sciences clinical simulation lab and classroom on the Russell Sage College campus in Troy.

The Empire State Development award is funded by the Regional Economic Development Council initiative.

When complete, Russell Sage College’s new 3,050-square-foot clinical simulation center will provide a hospital-like setting where Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Nutrition students will practice with high-tech manikins and medical equipment. The new clinical simulation center will complement the existing simulation space in McKinstry Hall.

The clinical simulation lab expansion is also supported by a major gift from the William Randolph Hearst Foundation.
