The new Health Sciences building is designed to be a state-of-the art facility for teaching hands-on skills required for work in the healthcare industry. The plan includes classrooms and labs equipped with the latest medical devices and technology in a setting similar to a real-world hospital. Projected to serve an additional 288 students and expand the number of health-science programs available from 14 to 17, this facility addresses the critical shortage and growing demand for healthcare professionals. The design also includes offices, common areas, and a clinic with public access on the first floor.

Stanford White engineered systems include power, lighting, fire alarm and detection systems, site lighting, specialized plumbing such as acid-waste piping, vacuum, and simulated medical gas, fire sprinkler piping with backflow prevention, access control and cabling in classroom settings, and a simulated nurse call system. Domestic and sanitary waste system, roof drainage piping, and HVAC system design also provided. In addition, a regional chilled water and boiler plant is created in the adjacent Balsam Center to serve both buildings. (In Construction)
