When Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences (PCHS) transitioned from a diploma nursing school to a degree-granting institution back in 2002, enrollment started to rise. Though the college continued to evolve, its fragmented, five-building campus couldn’t keep up. Enter our project managers, planners, and interior designers—the team that helped PCHS find and define their perfect home.
Completed in 2016, PCHS’ new 24.7-acre campus transforms a former office building and warehouse in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, into a two-building, 345,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art health sciences campus.
The Kenneth G. Stoudt Building houses the admissions department, conference center, campus dining facility, administrative offices, and a custom boardroom.
The Emmett M. & Anne C. Cooper Building, dedicated to learning, includes over 1,000 classroom seats within 26 classrooms, a 450-seat auditorium, a 24,000-square-foot simulation center, general science labs, a 14,500-square foot learning commons, collaborative study spaces, a health/wellness/fitness center, a café, and faculty office suites.
Combined on one campus, the students at the Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences have found a new home for their educational years.
