Richard Lester, GE facilities manager in Rome, told a small crowd in a campus conference center that, while GE has a long history of giving to CVTC and the community, it lacked a unified approach. The new approach focuses on economic development in: health care, manufacturing, robotics and workforce development.
And CVTC does (workforce development) better than anyone, Lester said. It is our greatest privilege to support them in their efforts to produce graduates to meet the growing workforce needs of our community.
Dr. Ken Davis, president and chief executive officer of Harbin Clinic, said, It is vitally important health-care students practice their skills on the most advanced systems possible.
CVTC graduates who possess solid technical and classroom skills, and who can operate in todays fast-changing technology environment, will continue to add to Romes reputation as a leader for patient care.
Nee Barnor, CVTCs ultrasound instructor, said, Having the GE LOGIQ 9 helps students make a smooth transition from classroom education into their clinical experience.
The school provided a glimpse of the LOGIQ 9 by running a
clip from its television program Workforce Connections,
which focuses on CVTCs health-care leadership and its link to economic vitality. The program airs on Comcast channel 4.
