COLUMBIA — With a generous $5 million allocation in the 2017 state budget proposed by Gov. Jay Nixon, the Thompson Center acquired an additional building in the medical corridor off of Keene Street in Columbia.
The new building was previously home to Primaris, a healthcare quality company that will remain as a short-term tenant through 2017, and was purchased by the University of Missouri for the Thompson Center in August.
Research and training staff will relocate to the new building, which is adjacent to the current Thompson Center building at 205 Portland St., in 2017, following remodeling the bottom floor into office and research space.
Clinical services will remain in the Portland Street building, and additional clinical space will be outfitted to serve more clinic patients in the current location.
