Health Sciences Complex – January 2014
The rejuvenation of the former Chrysler site is well underway. The University is participating in a strategic partnership with Delle Donne & Associates, Inc. and Bancroft Construction Company to develop phase one of the project.
The anchor academic tenant on the site will be the UD College of Health Sciences. By January 2014, the site will be transformed into a health sciences complex that will include:
- primary care clinics
- physical therapy clinics
- and much-needed facilities for clinical teaching and research.
The project is about much more than renovating a building—it’s about serving our students and the community.
On site, the College of Health Sciences will be able to expand their approach of utilitizing clinical experience and translational research to facilitate unique educational environments. This innovative focus on education and training prepares the next generation of health care thought leaders with hands on experience while providing direct benefit to the community through services and research.
The STAR campus presents a great opportunity to integrate academics, business, and the community in an environment that will promote innovation and generate impact. It is a location that will foster faculty research and entrepreneurship and further student internship opportunities. In line with the goals of the State of Delaware, it will be a place of economic vitality where jobs are created and nurtured and the College of Health Sciences is able to move forward to meet the demands for our services.
