With an enrolment of over 10,000 full-time students across its seven campuses throughout the Simcoe-Muskoka districts, and with programs spanning from apprenticeships to degree programs through its University Partnership Centre, Georgian College is a critical component of the local educational and economic structure.
In August of 2011, Georgian College officially opened its Sadlon Centre for Health and Wellness, the largest building project in Georgian College history, ushering in a new era in healthcare education. Sarjeants is proud to have donated $250,000 toward the centre, which includes state-of-the-art labs, classrooms, and clinics. Along with Sarjeants donation, John and Margaret Elliott, both strong believers in education and how it improves the industry and the community, donated $1,000,000 to the Centre. The Sarjeant Company also played an integral part in the construction process of this building by delivering the concrete.
With the new 172,000 square ft. building on its Barrie campus, Georgian College was able to double its intake of full-time health and wellness students from 1,500 to 3,000 and is offering 15 full-time health and wellness programs along with several Continuing Education programs. While this building is part of Georgian College, aspects of it are also open to the public such as health care clinics including dental programs and general health practitioners.
