Southeast Missouri State approves program in health care facilities operation

CAPE GIRARDEAU — Southeast Missouri State University is adding a new program in health care facilities operations that it said would be just the third one of its kind nationwide.

Participants pursuing the certificate will study compliance, management and technology issues.

Southeast Provost Ron Rosati said Brigham Young and Purdue universities are the only two schools currently offering programs to prepare facility managers for the health care industry.

Rosati said the demand could not be met by those two programs alone.

Southeast worked closely with the Missouri Society for Healthcare Engineering and the two local hospitals to develop a certificate to address the need. Several health organizations also provided letters of support.

The Cape Girardeau's Board of Regents approved the certificate program Friday along with new minors in agriculture/horticulture entrepreneurship and autism studies.
