FRAMINGHAM — MassBay Community College took a step toward opening its first building tailored to students and their learning needs.

With Gov. Charlie Baker on hand, the college broke ground Wednesday at the site of what will be its new Center for Health Sciences, Early Childhood and Human Services. Health care workers, early childhood educators and human services professionals will learn and train in the 68,500-square-foot building, anticipated to open in the summer of 2023.

MassBay President David Podell said the “state-of-the-art” building will “advance opportunities across the educational spectrum.”

“We look forward to deepening even further our existing collaborations and sharing this incredible new resource with our educational partners,” he said. 

The new building will be at the corner of Mount Wayte Avenue and Franklin Street. Framingham State University first acquired the 8.3 acres of land from Perini Corp. for close to $2.3 million in late 2015 to provide additional parking for students.

MassBay expects to serve 100 students in associate degree programs in nursing and radiologic technology; 200 in certificate programs in a variety of fields, including medical coding, paramedicine, phlebotomy and EMT programs; and 200 more studying to be nursing assistants or home health aides.
