Recently, Good Samaritan College of Nursing and Health Science held its “Wall Breaking” Ceremony to celebrate the beginning of its major $6.4 million Renovation Project through Turner Construction. The two-year project will result in renovations to almost all areas of the GSC campus.
- The Eighth Floor will remain as the entrance to the College with the entire floor dedicated to Student Learning – Classrooms, Skills Labs and the Simulation Center and the One-Stop (Admissions, Financial Aid, Bursar).
- The ninth floor will continue to house the Student Success Center along with more classrooms and Accommodation rooms.
- The Tenth Floor will be dedicated to Administration, Faculty and Staff offices.
- The heating and air-conditioning system will be upgraded across the Campus, along with a modernization of Student Lounges.
As Meg MCCann, Chair of the College’s Board of Trustees said, “For many years, our College has been focusing on and continually improving our students’ healthcare education. Now, we’re being given the opportunity to focus on improving the Campus where our students receive that excellent education.”
Planning for the project began shortly after President Hauschildt’s 2016 arrival at the college. “I realized that our outstanding education needed to be supported by contemporary surroundings and cutting-edge technology, “ said President Hauschildt. “this renovation is part of our Strategic Plan to help GSC become a destination site for students interested in a healthcare career in the Tri-State area.”
