The Stone Family Center for Health Sciences is a 140,000 SF, medical education and research facility serving three institutions and nearly 500 medical students: Indiana University expands its four-year program in medical education, dentistry, and research to Evansville; University of Southern Indiana offers occupational therapy and nursing programs; and University of Evansville offers a physical therapy and a physician assistant program.

SLAM developed a space program that allows each institution to establish its own identity while sharing common use spaces such as classroom, gross anatomy, labs, and more. A simulation center reflects the continuum of care by creating distinct zones for ambulatory, acute care, and inpatient simulation. The School of Dentistry Clinic and Clinical & Transitional Science Institute are open to the community for dental services and clinical trials.

The Center is part of a new medical district that includes Deaconess Health System’s new 90,000 SF clinical office building which is expected to open in 2020, along with several other new developments.
