WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center plans to build a $100 million project in downtown Winston-Salem that will serve as a major medical education center.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported (https://bit.ly/1ugOr3h) half of the money will come from historic tax credits with the other half being funded through a larger capital campaign that will be publicly launched next summer.

Medical students will be able to use the new center starting in July 2016. The rest of the complex will house offices, labs and possible retail space.

Wake Forest Baptist has long wanted to expand its research and medical education facilities. The medical school has been in the Bowman Gray building since 1969.

Medical School Dean Dr. Edward Abraham says the old building is outdated.
