Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic have partnered to create a new joint Health Education Campus in response to the rapid development of the area’s technology and healthcare markets. As part of this new campus, the University determined a 2-story addition to their School of Dental Medicine building was required to meet overall space needs as well as create an expanded area for research activities. Leadership understood that the steady growth of the program was a critical aspect of the school’s strategic plan, revenue generation, clinical goals, and student and faculty recruitment.
The overall goals were to provide a dynamic and vital space to enhance the student, faculty and clinical experience while creating a significant outward image for the School of Dental Medicine with the Health Science Campus. The project also delivers a high-performance building and progressive research, education, patient care and training within the facility. Kahler Slater provided programming and planning in partnership with DLR Group | Westlake Reed Leskosky.
“This building will enhance the education of all of our health sciences students, because each discipline has much to teach—and learn from—one another. Just as important, it will contribute to the health and well-being of thousands of patients in our community.”
Case Western Reserve President Barbara Snyder
