In the fall of 2023, the UPMC Health Sciences Tower at Harrisburg University will open its doors. This twelve-story building will be a hub for various healthcare programs, including nursing, pharmaceutical sciences, exercise sciences, and other allied health programs. It will also house classrooms and training spaces for advanced manufacturing and interactive media programs, auditoriums, and student life and tutoring areas.

The partnership between UPMC and Harrisburg University is crucial to training the next generation of healthcare workers. UPMC has announced a 10-year financial commitment to support Harrisburg University program development, and this philanthropic and community-minded leadership is historic for the community and region.

This investment will directly support the healthcare workforce and make Harrisburg the region’s anchor for Eds & Meds. The new space will provide new opportunities for students pursuing careers in health care.

The UPMC Health Sciences Tower at Harrisburg University will offer expanded classroom and lab space for the UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing and provide simulation spaces, science labs, and skills labs. With this new facility, Harrisburg University and UPMC hope to train the next generation of healthcare workers and positively impact the community.

The University is spending $100 million on this project.

No tax-exempt bonds will pay for the construction of the building.

Harrisburg-based Reynolds Enterprises Inc. and The Whiting-Turner Contracting Co., based in Baltimore, were hired to support Butler County architect Alex Wing of Stantec on pre-construction plans for the building.
