Orlando, FL – (March 14, 2016) – More than 120 community members came out to help the Orlando campus of Southern Technical College, “Southern Tech,” welcome its new Patient Care Technology (PCT) during a Grand Opening event March 12.
The new program, which features an interactive lab, is geared at healthcare professionals seeking career college training in this emerging field. In Florida especially, with an aging Baby Boomer population, this field of study is expected to grow.
The high-energy event featured a DJ (pictured) and included barbecue, children’s activities and tours of the two-building campus.

“This exciting new program is part of our commitment to providing the latest education options for healthcare students in our state,” said Levert. “We are proud to begin preparing these professionals for their promising careers.”
Southern Tech-Orlando is located at 1485 Florida Mall Ave.
