Students Begin Classes at New Sinclair Sifferlen Health Sciences Center

The $31.5 million, 141,000-square-foot facility, located at the main campus on the corner of Fourth and Perry streets in Dayton, brings Sinclair’s health sciences degree and certificate programs from nine buildings into one innovative center. In the new Health Sciences Center, the occupational therapy assistant and physical therapy assistant lab spaces are divided by a retractable wall which can be opened to provide students with inter-professional learning opportunities. The facility also includes a one-of-a-kind home health simulation space and a surgical simulation suite featuring Skytron equipment used by local health care facilities. Finally, Sinclair Community College’s commitment to excellent education and community service can be seen in the expanded 25-chair Midmark Dental Health Clinic, which also provides dental care to more than 1,600 underserved residents each year.

Students began using the facility Aug. 21, the first day of the fall semester. The project came in both on schedule and on budget. Read more. Watch Interview.
