The New Health Sciences Building
We are incredibly excited about the new Health Sciences building which will be located at 41st street and Monarch Way! This 3 floor state-of-the-art facility will house the Schools of Dental Hygiene, Rehabilitation Sciences (athletic training, kinesiology and rehabilitation, occupational therapy and physical therapy), as well as research labs for the School of Medical Diagnostic and Translational Sciences.
The building will also be the home of the Sofia and David Konikoff Dental Hygiene Care Facility which will increase services for the community through the addition of more dental chairs and added services. Thanks to a generous gift from Andrew Wallach and Cynthia Faschini we will be renaming the Monarch Physical Therapy Clinic to the Faschini Wallach Center for Restorative Therapies. This gift will enable us to increase our footprint to 11,000 square feet and expand our services to provide more comprehensive rehabilitation and post-rehab services as well as include a pediatric gym and community work area. Our clinical classroom and lab space will be exemplary, allowing for interactive teaching opportunities across the board. Lastly, our new building will be home to a new cadaver lab which will serve as the foundation for anatomical instruction for our health professions students.
Meanwhile, we will continue to have a presence in Virginia Beach for the School of Nursing, and our other programs in public health, environmental health and medical diagnostic and translational science will expand within our current building. We look forward to preparing more of your preferred healthcare providers and health professionals!
