St. John's University broke ground on the $106 million Health Sciences Center in New York in May of 2022. Located on the Queens campus, the 70,000-sf facility will provide state-of-the-art laboratories, active learning classrooms, and simulation suites to train the next generation of caregivers. Housing the School of Nursing and other allied health programs, the project will promote interprofessional education with flexible teaching venues where teams of students can work together. The technology-enabled building will accommodate a range of pedagogical modes with remote learning seamlessly integrated into the curriculum. Featuring highly efficient and adaptable infrastructure, the sustainably designed facility will include a collaborative atrium, an outdoor terrace, and an expansive rooftop solar array. Occupancy is expected in fall of 2024.
