ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- The plan to create a new medical school with a focus on rural healthcare continues to move forward.

Ken Holmen is the CEO and President at CentraCare. He says they have selected the Administrative Services Building next to the Plaza Building to be the home of the new school.

Holmen says that the building has been basically empty since the pandemic began with more administrative people working from home.

The school has also received a total of $15 million from the Minnesota State Legislature in the recent session. $5 million is specific to the building renovation.  $10 million is to fund the programming, scholarships, etc… (the original ask from the legislature was $72 million).
