SWBR designed the new York Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute, a $16.5 million renovated, expanded building that provides collaborative learning environments and clinic spaces. The project consisted of expanding the existing educational and clinical facilities of the college’s School of Health and Human Services. It will be dedicated to nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, social work and creative arts therapy, as well as pre-medical and pre-dental studies.
Quick Look at the York Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute:
• Doubles the clinic and collaboration space to 66,700 square feet, bringing all of Nazareth’s health and wellness fields under one roof.
• Promotes learning and collaboration across disciplines, such as nursing, speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, art and music therapy, and social work.
• Facilitates student-faculty research through proximity and new meeting spaces to improve health and wellness outcomes and clinical practice.
• Clients benefit from high-quality, person-centered services at minimal to no cost.
The expansion and reconfiguration are expected to boost enrollment by an estimated 30 percent and will equip Nazareth graduates with the skills needed for the rapidly changing world of health care.
