About the OLC

Welcome to the NEW OLC!  As a leading center of laboratory-based learning the OLC has welcomed physicians, surgeons and medical professionals since 1994.  Now, our versatile facility offers meeting and educational planners a greater option to satisfy client and guest needs. Whether for medical training or as an offsite for any industry, the OLC is the perfect location for airport-convenient meetings and more! Our cutting-edge AV technology and flexible facility can accommodate a vast array of group sizes and configurations.  The new OLC now features 6,000 square feet of divisible state-of-the-art laboratory space for bio-skills training, research development, new surgical product and technique presentations, and other special events.  In addition, the OLC has 5,300 square feet of meeting room space that can be configured to provide high-technology classroom settings for seminars, live-stream training broadcasts, developmental conferences and countless other business needs.
