Mosaic Life Care Announces Pledge For NWMSU Hall Renovation

Mosaic Life Care in St Joseph has announced a pledge towards the renovation planned for one of the oldest buildings on the Northwest Missouri State University campus.

Mosaic Life care has pledged $250,000 towards the renovation of Martindale Hall.

Northwest Missouri State University’s Board of Regents approved a $1.3 million renovation for the third floor of Martindale Hall. The renovation will include $1 million from donors. Martindale Hall opened at Northwest in 1926 and houses the University’s School of Health Science and Wellness

The project targets a 4,260-square-foot section that includes multipurpose space and storage areas. The upgrades also will provide academic laboratory spaces to support nursing, human services and school counseling programs as well as faculty and staff offices.

The third-floor renovation of Martindale Hall is the first phase of long-term plans to update the entire building, which was last renovated during the mid-1970s and includes Martindale Gymnasium. The Missouri General Assembly approved $8.5 million for the $17 million project through a matching grant.
