University of South Alabama - Whiddon College of Medicine

The University of South Alabama is planning to construct a $200 million facility for the Frederick P. Whiddon College of Medicine in Mobile. Designed by Perkins&Will and Eskew Dumez Ripple to define a vibrant health sciences district, the project includes the demolition of two existing structures to enable the creation of a 300,000-sf building adjacent to the College of Nursing. The new L-shaped development will include a four-story, 67,563-sf education wing offering learning studios, seminar rooms, a clinical skills lab, a gross anatomy suite, and a demonstration kitchen. A five-story, 67,651-sf research wing will feature open, multidisciplinary laboratories that can easily adapt to changing programmatic requirements. This dynamic nexus of collaboration and discovery will incorporate elegant conference rooms that will be available to the entire campus community, as well as a 26,255-sf vivarium with dedicated procedure areas. Demolition will commence in late 2023 with occupancy expected in 2026.
