A new page on the Keck Medicine of USC Intranet portal provides faculty and staff with regular updates from the series of construction projects currently happening across the Health Sciences Campus.
The HSC Construction page will include timeline information on projects, as well as photos, renderings and video.
“The new site on the KeckNet is a convenient place to find the latest information on the construction, including the beautification project happening across the Health Sciences Campus,” said Robert Scrofano, director of Capital Construction Development at HSC.
The largest projects happening across the campus include USC Stevens Hall, home of the USC Mark and Mary Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute; student housing complex Currie Hall; and the Norris Healthcare Center (NHC). Stevens Hall is scheduled for completion this month, while Currie Hall is scheduled to open in August. NHC is the first new medical building on the USC Health Sciences Campus in more than a decade. Scheduled to open in 2017, NHC will have an ambulatory surgery center, a women’s cancer program, the region’s first comprehensive multiple sclerosis clinic, a state-of-the-art infusion center and several new dining options.
The projects are aimed at transforming the 79-acre campus into an oasis of medical research and health care, while providing benefits to the surrounding community. Work also continues on the HSC Beautification Project, which is aimed at giving the USC Health Sciences Campus a more university-like feel, with architectural elements from the University Park Campus incorporated into the Health Sciences Campus streetscape.
The HSC Construction page was developed by the Keck Medicine web services and internal communications teams.
