Academic Health Science & Research Center
A future Hub for Medical Innovation and Research in the Midwest
The Stone Family Center for Health in downtown Evansville is ready for the 2018-19 academic year. The 149,000 square foot building houses classrooms, an amphitheater, and a state of the art simulation center.
Indiana University, the University of Evansville, and the University of Southern Indiana are proud partners of the Stone Family Center for Health. The new education and research facility for health professionals will provide training in the fields of medicine, dentistry, physician assistant, nursing and occupational therapy. Along with the three universities, four regional hospitals have also partnered, including St. Mary's Health System and Deaconess Health System in Evansville, Indiana, Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes, Indiana and Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center in Jasper, Indiana.
According to Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke “Training resident physicians at home is important because we know 70 percent of doctors stay in communities where they do their training.”
Economically, the med school is projected to produce $340 million in annual impact by 2020. Already since the spring of 2014, multiple new housing projects, mixed-use developments, restaurants and retailers have opened in downtown Evansville.
