The Community Health Centers of Southeastern Iowa built its West Burlington facility on about five acres of land owned by the college.

As part of a lease agreement, SCC was given access to some space in the building for educational purposes, but the college no longer needs that space because it plans to add a new health services building to its West Burlington campus as part of a system-wide improvement plan.

This prompted the two sides to change the lease.

The Community Health Centers of Southeastern Iowa agreed to pay the college $200,000 in exchange for SCC no longer having access to the classroom space.

SCC will still own the property.
