University of Maryland [USA] Opens $62 Million, State-of-the-Art Pharmacy Hall

09 October 2010

After more than 15 years of advocacy and 22 months of construction, the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy [Maryland, USA] officially opened its new $62 million Pharmacy Hall building with a celebration Oct. 5 that included a wide spectrum of political, academic, and community leaders and friends of the School.

Prominently located on Baltimore's West Side, the new Pharmacy Hall is seven stories tall and includes lecture halls equipped with technology for distance learning, experiential learning facilities, and research laboratories. It also includes a dispensing laboratory with state-of-the-art robotics-a trend that allows pharmacists to dedicate more time to other critical patient care duties such as medication management therapy.

"Expertise. Influence. Impact. I can think of no better words to describe the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, and our new building is a structural sign of our School's pre-eminence and leadership in the fields of pharmacy education, practice, research, and community service in the state of Maryland and beyond," says Natalie D. Eddington, PhD, FAAPS, dean of the School of Pharmacy. "Through the advocacy efforts of our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends and with a financial commitment from the state of Maryland, our new home is finally ready."
