WILKES-BARRE —Calling it a “pivotal moment” in the history of King’s College, President Jack Ryan Thursday announced a $16 million project to purchase and renovate the former Ramada Hotel on Public Square — saying it will become the home of the college’s physician assistant program and two others.
Ryan said construction will begin immediately on the project. The college assumed ownership of the building on Wednesday, he said.
“There have been many weddings, parties and dinners here,” Ryan said. “New memories will be made going forward — memories in teaching and learning at a state of the art facility.”
The building will house the physician assistant program, exercise science program and the athletic training program.
