It's a unique educational partnership that marks years of planning and development. The $4.4 million facility is located near NorthCrest Medical Center in Springfield. The hospital has been an important partner in the project, funding all of the operating costs for the first two years. A local resident, Billy Batson, donated the land. Robertson County and Springfield leaders made it all possible by providing $6 million in funding for construction. Residents gave final approval by voting in favor of the funding in a special referendum. The building is now open.

Vol State runs the new campus with an on-site director, faculty and staff. Vol State classes include general education requirement courses that apply to most of the degree and program options at the College and program specific courses in Allied Health.
