The ground breaking ceremony for Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) will take place next Monday, April 27th. The significance of this event and its importance to Las Cruces, Doña Ana County and Southern New Mexico should not be overlooked.
The total (direct, indirect and induced) economic impact during the start-up period (2014-16) is expected to be $87.3 million (over the start-up period of two and a half years) and create more than 390 new jobs (360 construction, 35 BCOM operations). Upon full operation, the new medical school will support 350 jobs in the region and generate more than $77.7M in total economic impact per year (direct, indirect and induced impacts).
In addition, by 2028, the economic impact that the medical school will have on the communities in southern New Mexico will total $31.9 million per year (for a total impact of $109.6 million community and statewide) as the communities begin realizing healthcare benefits and additional economic impact as graduates of the new medical school locate in the region and state.
