SENECA FALLS, N.Y. — The Anatomy Center at the Northeast College of Health Sciences in Seneca Falls has a new imaging-sciences wing that includes sonography and radiological suites.

The school formally opened the wing and suites during a ceremony held on Tuesday, Feb. 13, per its announcement.

The new imaging-sciences facilities provide advanced learning spaces for students in Northeast’s new associate-degree programs in radiologic technology and diagnostic medical sonography, the college said.

The suites are also the latest addition to the Northeast College’s Anatomy Center, which already includes the computerized anatomy resource lab (CARL) containing 3D virtual Anatomage technology, a cadaveric dissection lab, and an observation theater.

Michael Mestan, president of the Northeast College of Health Sciences, says the goal is to not only educate, but also inspire the next generation of health-care professionals.

“We are pleased to become a new source of providing a highly skilled workforce for our regional health centers and hospitals, and to help improve the health and wellness of the members of our community,” Mestan said in a news release. “Together let us continue to strive for excellence and make a lasting impact on the future of healthcare, our College and the Finger Lakes region.”

The Northeast College of Health Sciences also anticipates offering a planned future master’s degree in physician-assistant studies.
