Designing an interprofessional allied health building

Hillsborough Community College
Allied Health Building

Tampa, Florida

Kahler Slater partnered with Hillsborough Community College to design a new Allied Health Building for their Dale Mabry Campus. The building provides a central home for HCC’s nursing, emergency medical services and respiratory care therapy programs and is designed in a way that allows students from all professions to learn together. Kahler Slater teamed with Harvard Jolly and provided health sciences education programming, planning and design services.

The College leveraged the project as a catalyst to review each program’s curricula and teaching pedagogies to embrace the latest trends in interdisciplinary, active learning health sciences education. The building includes a simulated hospital so that multiple programs may work together to replicate conditions found in real-life situations. Additional program components include classrooms, faculty offices, student study spaces and labs to support the wide range of allied health programs. The building contributes significantly to the region’s workforce and demand for allied health professionals.
