Union dedicates Providence Hall, a testimony to God's care for the university
Aug 26, 2010 - With thanksgiving to God for his sustaining grace to Union University over the past 30 months, President David S. Dockery and other university leaders dedicated Providence Hall – the new home for Union’s School of Pharmacy -- during an Aug. 25 ribbon-cutting ceremony.
A large portion of the third floor is devoted to simulation, with multiple human patient simulators that the School of Pharmacy shares with Union’s School of Nursing as a part of the university’s Center for Excellence in Health Care Practice.
Providence Hall is special, President David S. Dockery said, because it signifies Union’s commitment to a distinctive, cutting-edge approach to healthcare education. As part of the dedication ceremony, Dockery recognized Lou Oberndorf, who has been what the Union president called a “guiding force” in helping Union’s development of healthcare education through human patient simulators. Oberndorf was installed as the first senior fellow for the Center for Excellence in Health Care Practice.
