Cedarville University and Danis Building Construction hosted a media tour of the new Health Sciences Center at Cedarville on August 20. The facility cost $22.5 million and will enhance the University’s nursing and pharmacy programs through collaboration and state-of-the-art simulations, including a birth mom simulator.
Danis Building Construction, the company that built the Springfield Regional Medical Center’s new campus, completed the $18 million project. Cedarville spent an additional $4.5 million on equipment and technology for the building.
The state-of-the-art facility includes classrooms, research facilities, simulation labs and work space. Combining the pharmacy and nursing schools into one space will give students opportunities to collaborate with other practitioners in the medical profession.
The facility opened for classes on August 22, 2012. A dedication ceremony is planned for October 5, 2012.
