Healthcare Hub

Structured and consistent systems
and procedures help Bancroft
exceed owners' objectives.

«

The College of Health Sciences has more than 100 faculty members
in departments who collaborate on research programs that address
cardiovascular health, neurological diseases, orthopedics, health
services research, speech-language-hearing, aging and women's and
children's health. Its long-term goal is to develop a "Healthy Delaware"
and develop best practices to advance healthcare across the country.
"The College of Health Sciences will be nationally and internationally known as a hub of interdisciplinary research, education
and public outreach dedicated to advancing human health," the
university says. "We will be leaders in advocating interdisciplinary,
team-based learning for students in experiential and discovery
learning settings."
The best healthcare education rarely happens in a traditional
classroom, Matt says. Because of this, STAR Tower will include few
spaces for sitting in a chair to learn and a multitude of areas that
support hands-on experience and collaboration.
Every lab in the building will have windows so students, faculty
and visitors can see what is happening inside. "Physically seeing patients every day strengthens students' and researchers' connections
to the communities of people they want to help," Matt said. "The
whole idea of STAR is to cut down on the timeline [that outcomes
of health-related research takes years to reach patients.] There's a
pipeline that many times takes 10, 20, 30 or 40 years. It should be
discovery and delivery happening simultaneously."

business world and with our clinical partners - to train the next
generation of healthcare professionals and to create the next innovations in healthcare through cutting-edge research," said Kathleen
Matt, dean of the College of Health Sciences.
At 150 feet tall, the 10-story tower will be a 130,000-square-foot
multi-purpose facility when completed next year. STAR Tower is a
collaboration between private developer Delle Donne & Associates
and the University of Delaware. "Partnerships make all of this possible," University of Delaware President Dennis Assanis said. "Partnerships are essential for a modern research facility like UD. They link
our scholarship to action and they extend our reach into the world."
STAR Tower's flexible program space will house the expansion of
the University of Delaware's College of Health Sciences and is capable of serving as office or residential purposes. The tower is located
west of the former Chrysler administration building and is described
by Delle Donne & Associates as "prominent but not dominant."
After eight months of construction, STAR Tower has reached its
full height as the third-tallest building in Newark and has become
a prominent new feature in the city's skyline. In August, Bancroft
completed the skeletal frame of STAR Tower and held a topping off
ceremony where state, university and city officials autographed the
final steel beam and watched as workers used a crane to lift it into
place. This signified the completion of the building's frame.
"This is the latest star in the UD crown," Assanis said. "Just imagine
this tower, which will soon be filled with a bustling mix of students,
researchers, entrepreneurs, clinicians and the community. Everybody
will come together in an environment that fosters collaboration."
