Assumption Breaks Ground on New Health Sciences Building
Three years ago, Assumption celebrated the opening of the hub of academic life on campus, the Tsotsis Family Academic Building. In fall 2020, the institution opened a new, 41,000-square-foot Health Sciences building, where students will not just be prepared to treat an illness. At Assumption, we prepare students to treat a patient who happens to have an illness.
Health care professionals that graduate from Assumption are renowned for their empathy and those who understand and respect the dignity of the human person. They will believe and embrace the fact that they are treating not only a patient, but also their family.
The Health Sciences building houses the nursing program, but benefits students in all disciplines. The Health Sciences building is located next to the Emmanuel d'Alzon Library, across from the Hagan Campus Center.
State-of-the Art Classrooms:
- Four classrooms that can accommodate 32 to 50 students.
- All classrooms are equipped with full audio/visual technology including a recording system in the simulation labs to be used for a debriefing following a lab exercise
- The nursing floor features a large nursing skills lab with seven full-sized hospital beds for teaching patient care.
- Four simulation labs have hi-fidelity manikins that can simulate actual patient conditions (vitals, seizures, cardiac arrest, childbirth, etc.,) all of which can be controlled remotely by a simulation lab technician.
Spaces for Study and Collaboration:
Throughout the spacious building with an interior illuminated by natural light, students have access to lounges, smaller break-out space and de-briefing rooms and conference rooms, 9 offices for faculty and staff, and suites for each of the Deans.
Ground Broken on Health Sciences Building
Before a gathering of students, Trustees, faculty, and staff, Assumption broke ground on a new, 41,000-square-foot Health Sciences building that will welcome students in fall 2020.
“In this new building, we will not simply train future nurses and health care professionals to treat a disease or ailment,” said President Francesco C. Cesareo, Ph.D. “At Assumption, our unique programs will form individuals who will treat the human person with compassion. Health care professionals that graduate from Assumption will be renowned for their empathy and those who understand and respect the dignity of the human person.”
