The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg broke ground on the $19.2 million Life Sciences Building in August of 2021. Accommodating programs in nursing, allied health, biochemistry, and natural sciences, the 32,000-sf facility will provide sophisticated simulation suites, chemistry and biology labs, a telemedicine center, a clinical training lab, a computer lab, student lounges, and administrative space. Designed by MCF Architecture, the technology-rich building will equip students with the crucial skills needed to fill growing vacancies among regional and state healthcare providers. The inviting structure will be physically connected to Smith Hall to complete Pitt-Greensburg's unified life sciences complex. Occupancy is expected in early 2023.
