The Luverne Educational Center for Health Careers opened its doors to students in Fall semester 2007 as part of a joint effort between Minnesota West Community & Technical College, Sanford Health Systems and the City of Luverne. The facility was previously a working hospital until 2005 when Sanford opened their new hospital and medical clinic. This educational opportunity for both traditional and non-traditional students adds new options for educational growth for the community and surrounding area.
Currently, programs in Radiologic Technology, Surgical Technology, Medical Assistant, Medical Laboratory Technician, Phlebotomy, and Massage Therapy are offered on site, as well as Liberal Arts classes and customized training.
Students can pursue an Associate of Arts (A.A.) Degree in Liberal Arts through the Center. The A.A. degree allows students to build toward a Bachelor Degree by transferring to other Minnesota State Colleges and Universities as well as other public and private higher learning institutions.
