    Everett Community College's new $37.5 million nursing and health sciences building has named Liberty Hall after Liberty Mountain. in the Cascade Range. EvCC historically names its buildings after peaks of the Cascade and Olympic mountains.

Everett Community College has named its new $37.5 million nursing and health sciences building Liberty Hall after Liberty Mountain, following a campus tradition of naming its buildings after peaks in the Cascade and Olympic mountains.
Liberty Hall, located on North Broadway next to the college's Fitness Center, is expected to open in April. It will be home to the college's nursing, medical assisting and phlebotomy programs and other health sciences training.
The building, which has been under construction since September 2011, also will include room for the Providence Everett Healthcare Clinic, now located across the street.
The college chose the name Liberty Hall after seeking suggestions from the campus and the community. The college's Board of Trustees unanimously approved the name at its Jan. 15 meeting.
"The word liberty has many other meanings that apply to this structure," one nominator wrote. "A healthy lifestyle, being healthy, is liberating. Obtaining an education can be liberating, opening doors to new jobs and experiences. Liberty Hall is an ideal name for such a wonderful structure."
Liberty Mountain is located approximately three miles directly south of Three Fingers and stands as a prominent peak on the far western flank of the Cascades, along with the Whitehorse, Three Fingers and Pilchuck mountains. The mountains are visible from EvCC's Everett campus.
Liberty Hall will triple the amount of laboratory space for health sciences programs and include new technology to train healthcare professionals, such as the clinical simulation lab. The new space will give EvCC room for more students in the nursing, medical assisting, phlebotomy and nursing assistant certified programs.
The architect is SRG Partnership, Inc. of Seattle and the general contractor is Olympia-based Berschauer Phillips Construction Co., Inc.
