Florida Hospital College Announces Plans to Expand Campus and Programs
Florida Hospital College of Health Sciences recently announced plans to expand its campus to accommodate more students and offer new programs in the healthcare field.
“With this new building, we are going to be able to educate and train more students in a variety of medical professions,” said Dr. David Greenlaw, president of Florida Hospital College of Health Sciences.
The new 90,000-square-foot, five-story building will feature a large multi-purpose room to host educational hospital and community events, as well as a medical simulation lab with infant, child and adult simulators. The new academic center will also house four clinical labs, five chemistry and biology labs, and a variety of other classrooms with the capability to broadcast courses to diverse geographic locations using the latest web streaming technology.
“Our students truly benefit from a hands-on learning experience,” said Kathleen Wren, Ph.D., CRNA, Chair of the Nurse Anesthesia Program at the Florida Hospital College. “This new building will enhance what we are already doing with our students. Our proximity to Florida Hospital Orlando already provides our students with a valuable clinical learning experience and by creating more programs that are in demand; we will be able to train more future medical professionals.”
In addition to the new building, the college is expanding its curriculum to offer doctorates in nurse anesthesia, physical therapy and pharmacy. The college currently has a master’s program in occupational therapy and healthcare administration in additional to a variety of associate and bachelor’s degrees ranging from nursing to diagnostic medical sonography.
