Last week, the BRPH education team celebrated the grand opening of the Health Sciences Building at Eastern Florida State College (EFSC).
The new Health Sciences Facility serves as the landmark building for the ESFC Melbourne campus and will house 12 healthcare programs for students seeking Bachelor Degrees, Associate Degrees, and Certificates. It will house the expanded Allied Health Program as well as labs for surgery, nursing, emergency care, intensive care, radiography, sonography and more, all of which are on par with the best in the nation.
"This new building is incredible," said Brandon Livingston, a student in the Physical Therapist Assistant program. "We have state-of-the-art equipment for all the programs, and I think it will definitely be a positive impact on future healthcare and our education."
The Facility is strategically designed to match EFSC’s current architecture while modernizing the campus and establishing a new standard for its design. With a sleek and refined palette of colors, textures, and materials for this design, there is an undeniable air of excellence and precision. These characteristics will be incorporated throughout the campus as it is renovated and expanded in the coming years.
The facility is the second of several new buildings planned for the Melbourne campus, a plan which is now in its third year. In 2015 the firm joined EFSC in opening the Public Safety Institute, and they are in the process of designing and building a new Student Union with a planned opening in 2018.RSS
