BUILDING FOR A HEALTHIER FUTURE

The University of Washington, with investment from the state of Washington, is taking a major step: the development of a state-of-the-art new building to transform how we teach students to work together more effectively in teams of health professionals, ultimately caring for millions of people.

Located in the heart of the UW’s south campus (on NE Pacific Street adjacent to T Wing, I Wing and Hitchcock Hall), this new 110,000-square-foot building will:

  • Provide students with flexible, high-tech learning spaces, including computer simulation, mock treatment labs and remote-learning access
  • Create a hub for the health sciences schools to foster interaction, collaboration and cutting-edge learning
  • Attract and retain talented students and faculty driven to improve health care through an integrated approach

ELEVATING PATIENT CARE

Patients deserve the best care we can give them. Creating a new 21st-century building at the University of Washington is critical so that students and faculty can learn and practice integrated, collaborative health care.

From the COVID-19 pandemic to child welfare to health equity — solving issues affecting population health requires training health-care professionals to work together as a team to care for millions of people.

Fifty years ago, the average person was under the care of three health-care professionals. Now, the average healthy person relies on 16 professionals for their overall health care. But as patients’ health-care networks have grown, studies show that 80% of patient safety issues are related to problems in communication. We envision a future where patients benefit from the combined care of seamlessly integrated teams — of dentists, doctors, nurses, pharmacists and social workers.

Integrated patient care is the most important investment we can make for the future of health sciences. A collaborative, team-based approach — for research, education and practice — contributes to more cost-effective outcomes and a healthier public.
