Construction crews are putting the finishing touches on a new 10,000 square foot addition behind Sullivan Hall and connected to the DiSepio Institute for Rural Health and
Wellness. This new structure provides much needed classroom, laboratory and clinical education space to instruct students enrolled
in the Health Sciences programs. Key features of this new structure include the
creation of a larger, enhanced simulation center, nursing skills lab, and the addition of a simulated apartment. This added space provides an ideal environment to conduct interdisciplinary
Simulation Center. Five state-of-the-art simulation suites are being incorporated into the design that include a mock Emergency Room, Intensive Care Room, Patient Room, Maternity Room, and Exam Room. The suites have the ability to be utilized
simultaneously and feature computer controlled mannequins and two-way audio-video conferencing. The Center supports training of all current and future
Health Sciences programs. It uses an inter-professional approach by bringing students from a variety of fields together for collaborative learning. In addition, regional EMS and health care professional will have the opportunity to take advantage of the simulation center for continuing education.
Lab. This 800-square-foot space will facilitate learning by providing the faculty and students with the setting, models, equipment, and supplies necessary to learn hands-on clinical skills, the delivery of patient care, and the prioritization of patient care through clinical exposure, feedback and evaluation in a safe
Simulation Apartment. This state-of-the-art simulated living space affords students with the opportunity to problem solve aspects of patient care in a home setting. Featuring a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, this simulated apartment provides Occupational
Therapy students ( in addition to other majors) with a better understand of the challenges of delivering care to patients with limited abilities, thus improving their capability to live independently.
Additional Classroom and Cadaver Lab. The university will expand the on-site cadaver lab to accommodate eight cadavers to provide hands-on human anatomical education to Physical Therapy and Physician Assistant Sciences students.
Existing DiSepio Institute Structure. Continuing the commitment to provide residents of the surrounding region with healthcare services, students and faculty now have direct access to community members looking for rehabilitation and health education services.
This ambitious multi-phase project will benefit students in all of the Health Science disciplines:
Phase 1 of the Health Sciences Experiential Learning Commons was partially funded by a $1 million Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RCAP) Grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and a $2 million anonymous donation. Fundraising is underway for the larger portion of the project to reinvent Sullivan Hall.
