Cleveland State University breaks ground for health education building

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (Dec. 9, 2013) — Cleveland State University broke ground today for a health sciences building where future physicians, pharmacists, nurses and other health professionals will learn to work together in a collaborative environment.

Scheduled to open in June 2015, the Center for Innovation in Health Professions is a state-of-the-art education and research facility designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. The 100,000-square-foot building will foster interprofessional teaching, learning and research in community-centered health care. In addition to housing programs offered by Cleveland State’s School of Nursing and the School of Health Sciences, the building will also house the Cleveland cohort of NEOMED’s programs within their College of Medicine, College of Pharmacy and College of Graduate Studies and will serve as the home of the NEOMED-CSU Partnership for Urban Health, a partnership dedicated to training physicians and other health professionals that deliver primary care services in metropolitan communities.

PCPA won a competition to design the building in 2012. The design features open spaces connecting through the building, joined by a glassy circulation spine shaped like a lightning bolt. The spine reaches from the main entrance lobby on the north side on Euclid Avenue to a second entrance lobby on the south end of the site.
