Design Achievement – The Sheila and Eric Samson Pavilion Health Education Campus is a partnership project between the Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University. This new facility allows medical, nursing, dental, and physician assistant students to learn, study, and dine together. By placing these disciplines under one roof, students develop a shared language. Together, they foster the communication and collaboration that’s required in the fast-paced field of healthcare. This state-of-the-future campus features architectural, curricular, and technological innovations that are destined to elevate healthcare by transforming how students learn and collaborate.

Scope Summary – The 477,000-SF facility is located on an 11-acre site on Cleveland Clinic’s main campus and accommodates approximately 2,300 students. The facility features a mixture of lecture halls, classrooms, skills labs, administrative and office workstations, meeting rooms, conference rooms, and staff spaces organized around communal spaces. The ground floor features a large open atrium that functions as an assembly point, circulation zone, library, catering area, and simulation space. Upper floors include educational spaces, simulation and anatomy labs, administrative offices and large study areas.
