Over the next two years, Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences will have a historic opportunity to establish a single, unified campus which builds far more than walls. In 2016, the College will relocate to a new, 24.7-acre campus at 850 Greenfield Road in East Lampeter Township. The new campus includes a two-story, 65,000-square-foot, class-A office building for administrative offices and a 148,000-square-foot warehouse that will be renovated into state-of-the-art classroom and lab facilities and include a 90,000-square-foot mezzanine. This large center for learning will allow the entire College to be ideally positioned in one location, fostering a sense of college unity and community. This move provides a significant tool with which the College can further embed our strategic priorities into both the physical environment and learning climate. This is an opportunity to further PA College’s learner-centered purpose, as well collaboration and innovation.
The new campus infuses technology and design that supports collaborative learning and easily reconfigurable spaces that allow for creative use of space. Cutting edge technology will be woven into the new environment – from computers and cameras to simulation and learning arts laboratories, examination rooms and operating suites. A health suite will be constructed for student and employee wellness exams, immunizations and screenings. A multi-tiered, four-hundred seat auditorium will adjoin to a conference-style corporate education space. A wellness area will include a fitness center and rejuvenation space for learners and staff to “practice what we preach” in embracing mind-body wellness.
