Northern Kentucky University opened the $105 million Health Innovation Center in Highland Heights in September of 2018. Designed by CO Architects and GBBN Architects, the 108,179-sf interdisciplinary facility provides the College of Health Professions with advanced classrooms, laboratories, and offices. The building houses the College of Health Professions, the Institute for Health Innovation, the Institute for Student Research and Creative Activity, and the two-story St. Elizabeth Simulation Center. Supporting a transdisciplinary model of education and research, the facility consolidates multiple programs in a single location featuring flexible loft spaces, interaction areas, and a top-lit atrium. Bridges and an open stair connect the structure to the 108,885-sf Founders Hall, which was also renovated. Turner Construction broke ground on the project in late 2015.
