Hackensack Meridian Health/Seton Hall University’s new Interprofessional Health Sciences campus is an excellent example of an adaptive reuse of an existing labo- ratory building. For more than 80 years, pharmaceutical company Hoffmann-La Roche occupied the existing site, which led to environmental issues associated with contaminated groundwater and soil. With Torcon’s renovations, the site is now a multi-model virtual healthcare training center.

The newly-opened School of Medicine houses simulation centers, patient clinics, a library, casual eating facilities, student lounges and classroom space. There are also extensive skills laboratories for nursing, physiology and gross anatomy, administrative and faculty offices, and an auditorium.
