Stone Family Center for Health Sciences Dedicated at August 9 Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Posted: Thursday, August 9, 2018
The Stone Family Center for Health Sciences was dedicated today followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new facility.
The space will facilitate collaboration between the University of Evansville, the University of Southern Indiana, and Indiana University. In May of 2018, William and Mary Stone gave $15 million to support the collaboration and officially name the facility the Stone Family Center for Health Sciences.
UE will have dedicated space for its physician assistant and physical therapy programs on the first, third and fourth floors.
The second floor is dedicated to collaboration. Students from all disciplines and institutions will study gross anatomy together in the all-inclusive suite. The advanced simulation center—equipped just like a real hospital and complete with live patient actors—will record patient-caregiver interactions and provide real-time feedback for advanced training. This unique environment will allow our students to study alongside those from other institutions and disciplines and learn from professionals working in four different area hospitals.
