Healthcare Education Building

Healthcare Education Building


In 2022, a $14.4M bond was approved by Tillamook County voters, allowing Tillamook Bay Community College (TBCC) to construct a new Healthcare Education Building. With another $8M from the Oregon Legislature and a $1.4M bond premium, $23.8M in bond dollars are available for this project. 


The TBCC Healthcare Education Building will be constructed next to the main campus building, with groundbreaking occurring in late spring 2024. The 28,000 square foot building has been designed by Opsis Architecture, with input from faculty, staff, students, and the community. The project managers working with the college are Wenaha Group. The building should be ready to open by fall 2025.


The building will provide the college with the capacity to add a nursing program, and additional healthcare occupations training programs, and provide space to expand and add new degrees and certificates to meet the community’s growing workforce training needs. The new building will include state-of-the-art simulation labs, high-tech classrooms, office space, and a large-scale community space for conferences, trainings, and locally hosted events. The facility is expected to open in late spring 2025.
