Programming and design for the new four-story, 150,000 SF Health Sciences & Business Administration Center combined five academic healthcare programs. These programs include Nursing, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Sports Medicine/ Athletic Training, Exercise Physiology, and Social Work, in addition to Business Administration, which includes Healthcare Management.
Previously housed in five different buildings across campus, the new facility allows students and faculty to engage in cross-disciplinary discussions and research. The project building was envisioned and designed to foster interdisciplinary collaboration, support its community partnership and expand interaction with the adjacent South Georgia Medical Center (SGMC) and other health agencies.
The Center includes 15,000 SF of public clinic space to provide real-life training for students and interns. The building also includes nine technology-equipped lecture rooms with varied seating capacities on the ground floor. Other major components of the facility include:
“Working with you on the [Health Sciences & Business Administration Center] project was a professional and personal honor. From the first time we met, I felt a bond of trust in your talents to design an exemplary facility—and that you did! The new building is indeed a tribute to you and Heery.”
