Paradise Valley Community College (PVCC) is pleased to announce the opening of the Integrated Health Science Center. Located in the Q Building at the PVCC Union Hills campus located off of 32nd Street and Union Hills, the Integrated Health Science Center is an innovative instructional space that provides a venue for students to gain hands-on experience and apply their knowledge in a practical setting, while also offering a tangible benefit to the community.

Remodeled using Prop 301 funds, this new facility provides shared space for several PVCC health degree programs including Nursing, Exercise Science, Integrated Public Health, EMT/Fire Science/Paramedic, Healthcare Technology, and Dietetic Technology. In addition to multiple classrooms, the Integrated Health Science Center houses a simulation lab for nursing and paramedic students as well as a state-of-the-art teaching kitchen. Since opening in January 2019, the facility is already home to over 15 classes educating approximately 250 enrolled students. 

“We are incredibly excited to commemorate the opening of the Integrated Health Science Center to our students as well as our community,” said PVCC President, Dr. Paul Dale. “While the primary purpose of the facility is academic instruction, it will also serve as a collaborative space for students to partner with local healthcare providers and increase healthcare access for our underserved and underrepresented communities.”
