Mount Vernon, Ohio
Mount Vernon Nazarene University
Mount Vernon Nazarene University decided to repurpose an existing downtown three-story building (26,600 sf) into a School of Nursing and Health Sciences Building. The 26,650 sf structure is maintaining the historic character on the outside and achieved LEED Certification for the whole structure.
Along with the general classrooms and faculty offices, there is a nursing training and practice classroom, med tech labs, and simulator rooms. A community wellness clinic, conference center and internet cafe have also been added as a venue to bring the MVNU and Mount Vernon community closer together. This is a great addition to MVNU's existing Buchwald Art Center, and expands the University's presence in the downtown area of Mt. Vernon.
