Colleges Pay to Break Lease on Health Center


by Associated Press

579feeb7e3bf3.imageFREDERICK, Md. — Community colleges in Frederick, Carroll and Howard counties are paying a settlement to vacate a health care education center after it shut down.

The Frederick News-Post reports that the colleges will pay $278,000 apiece to break their lease at the Mount Airy College Center for Health Care Education. The money will go back to the property’s landlord, Back Acre Holdings LLC.
The colleges announced in January that the center would close following declining enrollment. The center was initially designed to expand access to health care programs for all three colleges when it opened in 2012.
Frederick Community College Board of Trustees Chairwoman Myrna Whitworth says that paying a settlement will save the college money.
