The 200-bed community hospital will serve South Florida, and will eventually become a teaching and research facility integrated with NSU’s clinics, research centers, and clinical trials. This milestone addition, coupled with this year’s opening of NSU’s Center for Collaborative Research, will provide students and faculty members expanded opportunities for research and training. These opportunities will be in a variety of the health professions, including osteopathic (D.O.) and allopathic (M.D.) medicine programs, engineering, and those pursuing other fields of study as well.
Most importantly, this will help our students realize their potential by fully preparing them for their careers. This is a victory for our university and our community. Please join me in celebrating this milestone moment, and I will keep you updated on the hospital and other momentous achievements at NSU.
Last year, Nova Southeastern University received its largest philanthropic gift in history from Tampa-area cardiologist Dr. Kiran C. Patel and his wife, pediatrition Dr. Pallavi Patel. The commitment from the Patel Family Foundation includes a $50 million gift and an additional $150 million real estate facility investment in an upcoming 325,000 square-foot medical education complex that will be part of NSU’s new Tampa Bay Regional Campus in Clearwater.
The complex will house the Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences, as well as the Ron and Kathy Assaf College of Nursing, Fischler College of Education and the College of Psychology. The project is estimated to be completed by mid-2019.
This exciting project will follow the Jeffersonian concept of a "community of scholars and students living and working closely together, combining theory with practice".
A $500-million partnership to transform a 30-acre, university-investment into a high-tech research/office park with nearly three million square feet of office, retail, financial, governmental, and residential space, as well as a hotel and a conference center.
Expected to generate millions in tax revenue and in workforce development, including high-tech jobs. The project will add to NSU's existing $2.6 billion economic impact in the state of Florida.
