CLEVELAND – Lakeshore Technical College on Friday celebrated a $1 million donation from Froedtert Health Network & the Medical College of Wisconsin, Froedtert Holy Family Memorial Hospital and the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity for the development of a new center of excellence in health care.
The donation is the largest in the LTC Foundation’s 46-year history and is part of a $5 million fundraising campaign for the new center, which is expected to open in 2023.
The new center will be a 16,000 square foot addition and renovation to the existing Cleveland campus, benefiting the 1,500 students and healthcare and emergency services professionals who will train at the new facility each year.
