Georgia Southern University opened the $23 million Health Professions Academic Building in January of 2019 in Statesboro, Ga. Designed by The S/L/A/M Collaborative to accommodate team-based learning, the technology-rich facility provides advanced simulation training suites, clinical skills labs, and instructional spaces. Illuminated by abundant natural light, the sustainably designed structure features the 8,193-sf St. Joseph’s/Candler Nursing Suite and the Memorial Health Active Learning Studio. Built by Holder Construction with Hendessi & Associates as program manager, the project included construction of a 63,250-sf addition and renovation of the 46,000-sf Ashmore Hall. Ground was broken on the collaborative facility in August of 2017.
