AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Georgia Regents University received $50 million to renovate the school's old College of Dental Medicine building. The 40-year-old building will be used for administrative functions for clinics as well as the school.

The Digestive Health Center will get $10 million of that grant to renovate the mostly vacant second floor for a new facility.

"This is very good," said Dr. Satish Rao, Chief of Gastroenterology. "Number one from a patient's perspective, because a patient has to come to only one place to get their digestive care."

Dr. Rao said they plan to move to the new building in a year.
