School of Health Science and Wellness

A Healthier Tomorrow
Serving the community through purposeful education and outreach

Healthy living and quality healthcare are important to the welfare of everyone. Addressing mental and physical health needs are critical factors for our communities to flourish. Northwest’s School of Health Science and Wellness is committed to addressing the region’s needs through high-quality, state-of-the-art educational programs, delivered in the reimagining of Martindale Hall.

Purposeful adjustments to the School of Health Science and Wellness’s offerings during the past decade have led to significant enrollment growth in critical areas of need spanning labs and offices in four buildings across the Northwest campus.

The University is pursuing capital improvements to significantly enhance program offerings and remedy associated staffing and space needs. Renovations to improve the quality, efficiency and relevance of Martindale Hall are long overdue, and the proposed remodel will allow all of the School’s units to finally reside under one roof where collaboration can flourish.
