October 16, 2014
ALLIANCE, Ohio – The University of Mount Union invites the surrounding community to attend an open house in the new, state-of-the-art Gallaher Hall from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 21.
Gallaher Hall, the University’s new health and medical sciences facility, officially opened in September in time for the start of the new academic year. The facility houses Mount Union’s Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies Program and Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program and a potential Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, pending the appropriate approvals.
Built by Hammond Construction, Gallaher Hall is connected by walkway to the south end of Bracy Hall, Mount Union’s natural sciences building, along Union Avenue.
The lower level includes two 24-seat chemistry laboratories and a motion analysis laboratory. The first floor, which houses the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies Program, features a 46-seat tiered classroom, an operating simulation room, a patient simulation room and an eight-bed exam room.
The second floor is devoted to the University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, featuring a 30-seat classroom, two six-bed skills labs and a patient simulation room.
Mount Union’s potential Doctor of Physical Therapy Program will be housed on the building’s third floor, featuring two lab spaces and a classroom.
During the open house, attendees will have the opportunity to tour all four floors of the facility and talk with faculty representatives from each of the programs housed in Gallaher Hall. The event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.
