Salina Facilities

Salina's Health Education Center is located in downtown Salina, five blocks north of the Salina Regional Health Center campus.

About the Health Education Center

Our building is home to the schools of Medicine and Nursing. Formerly a bank, the building lent itself to adaptation for a 56,000-square-foot educational space. 

The Health Education Center is located in downtown Salina.
Curriculum for the schools of Medicine and Nursing utilizes both on-site faculty and interactive televideo (ITV).
The use of simulation offers students opportunities to develop clinical skills, interprofessional collaboration and emergency preparedness.
Simulation events facilitated by faculty create a safe environment for practice and reflection that will benefit future patients and their families.
Our building features classrooms for the schools of Medicine and Nursing, as well as study areas, simulation and clinical skills spaces, and much more.
A fitness room in the Health Education Center is available for students to use.

Teaching and Technology

The schools of Medicine and Nursing utilize both on-site faculty as well as virtual conferencing platforms to connect students and faculty between campuses for classes and meetings.
