Phase 2 Future Home of the Health Sciences (Facade design by Celli-Flynn Brennan, Architects & Planners)
The Sullivan Hall Expansion and Renovation project, which will be the future home of the Health Sciences, continues to gain momentum thanks to your support.
We need you to become that someone for these talented future healthcare professionals. To help move the second phase of this project forward, the renovation of Sullivan Hall contact: Robert Crusciel '86, Vice President for Advancement at firstname.lastname@example.org or 814-472-3021. If you know a student who might be interested in pursuing a major in the Health Sciences, please encourage them to
schedule a visit.
In Spring 2018, construction began 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 will
provide much needed classroom, laboratory and clinical education space to instruct students enrolled
in the Health Science programs. Key features of this new structure are the
creation of a larger, enhanced simulation center, nursing skills lab, and the addition of a simulated apartment. This added space will provide an ideal environment to conduct interdisciplinary
A. Simulation Center. Five state-of-the-art simulation suites will be incorporated
into the design to 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 will feature computer controlled mannequins and two-way
audio-video conferencing. The Center will support training of all current and
future Health Science programs. It will use 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.
B. Nursing Skills
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
C. Simulation Apartment. This
state-of-the-art simulated living space will afford students with the opportunity
to problem solve aspects of patient care in a home setting. Featuring a
bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, this simulated apartment will provide 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.
D. 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.
E. Existing DiSepio Institute Structure. Continuing
the commitment to provide residents of the surrounding region with healthcare
services, students and faculty will 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.
