New Camosun Centre

Camosun’s new health science education building under construction will bear the name of a late local entrepreneur who co-founded Thrifty Foods.

Samantha and John Wilson, co-chairs of the Together for Health fundraising campaign, announced Wednesday that the new health science education centre under construction on Camosun’s Interurban campus will appear as the Alex & Jo Campbell Centre for Health and Wellness.

Jo Campbell said in a release that the chain has always supported health care-related causes. “We like to be on the cutting-edge, supporting the incubators where all these future health professionals will come from,” she said.

The new centre itself will bring over 1,000 students together from 15 different disciplines to a new state-of-the art facility at our Interurban campus.

Sherri Bell, president of Camosun College, said she could not be more excited for students, who will be able to learn and work in the new building, which also feature state-of-the-art equipment.
