Creighton University Changing the Landscape of Health Education in Phoenix
Creighton University will mark its commitment to expanding health education in Phoenix with a ceremonial groundbreaking of the nearly $100 million, 180,000-square-foot home of its new Health Sciences – Phoenix Campus at Park Central.
The event is planned for Sept. 25 at 9 a.m. Construction on the building at 3100 N. Central Ave. started in July.
“We are very pleased to be working with Creighton University to make this exceptional medical facility a reality,” said Sharon Harper, BA’69, chair of the Presidential Phoenix Health Sciences Advisory Board and chair and CEO of Plaza Companies, the building’s developer. “The new building will help fill a critical need in the Arizona medical community.”
Expected to be completed by 2021, the campus will serve nearly 900 students, invigorating Arizona’s health infrastructure with physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, physical therapists, occupational therapists and more — each educated in Creighton’s distinctive Jesuit, Catholic mission of service.
