Nazareth breaks ground on Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute

Nazareth College of Rochester broke ground Monday on a $16.5 million expansion project that is slated to double the School of Health and Human Services’ clinical and collaboration space.

The project will bring Nazareth’s health and wellness fields together in one building, college officials said.

The Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute is expected to boost enrollment by 30 percent and equip the college’s graduates with the skills needed to complete in the rapidly changing health care world, college officials said.

"The new institute will be a national model for the inter-professional training of the next generation of health-care providers. At the same time, it will create opportunities for research and provide clinical services that address the wellness and rehabilitation needs of members of the larger community," Nazareth College president Daan Braveman said in a statement.

The building is set to open in fall 2015.
