WesternU’s 180,000-square-foot Health Education Center, part of a $100-million campus expansion project, opened Jan. 4, 2010, to students and classes. The new facility features two 356-seat lecture halls, small group learning rooms for the Interprofessional Education curriculum, teaching laboratories in dental medicine and optometry, research laboratories, commons areas, conference rooms and faculty offices. HEC houses the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific, the College of Dental Medicine, the College of Optometry and the College of Podiatric Medicine.
WesternU also built a 600-space parking garage and opened the Patient Care Center (PCC) in May 2010. The PCC features a Dental Center, Eye Care Center, Foot & Ankle Center, Limb Preservation Center, Medical Center, Pharmacy, Travel Health Center and the Western Diabetes Institute under one roof.
The Daumier at Western University of Health Sciences, which opened in summer 2014, is a $45-million, 173,000-square-foot mixed-use project on 3.6 acres at Third and Linden streets in Pomona, Calif. The four-story building includes student-focused apartment-type residential quarters, as well as about 10,000 square feet of administrative space for WesternU.
WesternU bought the historic Chase Bank building in downtown Pomona in 2013, renaming it the Anderson Tower in honor of COMP alumnus Don A. Anderson, DO. A $4.2 million gift to WesternU from Dr. Anderson’s estate was used to purchase the Chase building.
