Middlesex Savings Bank recently presented MassBay Community College President David Podell with a check for $100,000 towards the construction of MassBay’s Center for the Health Sciences, Early Childhood, and Human Services. The donation will provide additional funding for the construction project as well as the Middlesex Savings Bank Student Services Center, which will be a hub for academic, social, career, and financial advising on the new Framingham campus.

“We are extremely grateful for the steadfast support and the generous donation from Middlesex Saving Bank,” said MassBay President David Podell. “Middlesex Savings Bank was the first corporate institution to contribute to our campus building project, and they have enthusiastically embraced our vision of providing career training to traditionally underserved populations, including communities of color. With their donation, Middlesex Savings Bank has made a firm commitment in support of the training and preparation of the future health care services, human services, and early childhood education professionals of MetroWest. Their dedication to the community and to our students will have a lasting impact for generations to come.”

“Supporting organizations and projects that help improve the lives of those in our community has long been part of the mission of Middlesex Savings Bank,” said Mike McAuliffe, President and CEO of Middlesex Savings Bank. “The programs at the new Center will provide students with a wide variety of career opportunities that will not only enrich their own lives but also help meet the health, education and human services needs of the community.”
Construction on the 68,500 square-foot, $58 million project is currently underway at the MassBay Center for Health Sciences, Early Childhood, and Human Services and is expected to conclude in 2023. Located at 490 Franklin Street in Framingham, the Center will house MassBay’s signature health care associate degree programs including nursing, surgical technology, and radiological technology, and its one-year and one-semester certificate programs in central processing technology, computed tomography, certified nursing assistant, emergency medical technician, medical coding, medical office administrative assistant, paramedicine, phlebotomy, and practical nursing. In addition, the Center will feature degree programs in early childhood and elementary education, and certificates in substance abuse, human services, direct support, and infant-toddler teacher.
