BINGHAMTON – Senator Tom Libous and Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger have reached a deal with Governor Andrew Cuomo to set aside $10 million in the 2014-2015 New York State Budget to begin developing a $60 million School of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacy in Johnson City.
“Working directly with the Governor made it very easy for us to move forward,” Libous said. “What the Binghamton University Downtown Center did to bring in private investment and new activity to revitalize downtown Binghamton, this school will do for Johnson City.”
The school will be off campus, preferably near one of the three major hospitals in the Triple Cities. The location will most likely be near Wilson Memorial Hospital in Johnson City.
