College of Health Sciences Facilities

In 2014, the Gardner-Webb University Board of Trustees announced the purchase of a 53,500-square-foot building that will house the new College of Health Sciences. Formerly the Crawley Memorial Hospital, the building is located at 315 W. College Avenue.

Prior to the acquisition, GWU leased space within the building for the Physician Assistant (PA) program, which began in January. The purchase included the physical structure, along with nearly 26 acres of property. Officials say the facility will offer many additional opportunities for university growth and will house other health science programs currently operating in other locations on the GWU campus.

“This facility provides precisely the kind of space we need to carry out high-quality programs in nursing, physician assistant studies, and preventive and rehabilitative health sciences,” said Dr. Ben Leslie, GWU Provost and Executive Vice President. “Having a single building dedicated to the health sciences positions the University for growth in a critical area.”
