YAKIMA, Wash. -- Pacific Northwest University's first and only building is complete and a dedication ceremony will be held Wednesday at 2:00 p.m.

The 45,000 square foot facility cost nearly $20 million dollars to construct.

The building, named Haney-Butler Hall, will be used for the university's college of osteopathic medicine.

University administrators estimate the school could bring in as much as $30 million dollars in revenue to Yakima annually.

The first day of classes will be August 4th.
