Contemporary sustainable design advances the University's goal of ensuring "a healthy mind in a healthy body" within a healthy building. One wing of the facility focuses on “treating the body” with 12 exam rooms (twice the number in the previous facility), while the other “fuels the mind” through seminar rooms for wellness and prevention, as well as a substance abuse and counseling area. The design utilizes a spacious glass-enclosed central lobby and courtyard to link the two wings and create a holistic health experience. Collocating services lessens student anxiety about seeking help.
By siting the building at a prominent intersection and creating spaces for wellness education, as well as diagnostic and treatment services, the University makes treatment more accessible and promotes lifelong skills for healthy living. The campus's first LEED Silver-designed building is anticipated to optimize energy performance by 18% over the industry baseline.
