Spencerian College Dupont Circle Campus Winner of Louisville Business First Commercial Real Estate Award

Named Best Education Project

Spencerian College Louisville’s major renovation of its new Dupont Circle campus has won Best Education Project of the Louisville Business First Commercial Real Estate Champions Award.

Spencerian College – which is part of the Sullivan University System –  began offering classes Jan. 2 at 4000 Dupont Circle within the Dupont Circle Medical Complex. The new Dupont facility is housing Spencerian’s College of Allied Health and The College of Nursing.

“We are very grateful and honored to win this prestigious award,” said Spencerian College Executive Director Jan Gordon. “We all worked so hard to prepare the new Dupont Circle campus for our students, faculty and staff, and are very proud of how the renovation has turned out.

“Moving to a new campus location provides tremendous access to major employers in Louisville’s healthcare industry and will provide the opportunity for more collaborative, interprofessional education and career opportunities for our current and future students,” Gordon said.

Projects completed in 2017 were eligible for the Commercial Real Estate Champions Award, which is now in its sixth year of honoring developments and deals that exemplify excellence in the commercial real estate industry. Winners were announced April 12.

“This project was to provide a new and completely modern campus for Spencerian College,” Glenn Sullivan, President of the Sullivan University System, told Louisville Business First. “Renovation of the existing building encompassed every system of the building.

“About the only things we left in place were the exterior walls, the elevators, the stairwells, the main restrooms and the exterior doors on the first floor,” President Sullivan said. “We incorporated design ideas from faculty as well as our interior designers and architect.”

The renovations provided additional resources for students and faculty which include mock operating rooms, patient-simulation labs, a respiratory therapy lab, MLT lab, two energized radiology labs, science lab, phlebotomy lab and massage therapy lab equipped with new modern equipment.

Located at the intersection of Breckenridge Lane and the Watterson Expressway (I-264), The Dupont area is the largest regional medical and healthcare complexes outside of downtown Louisville. Recent acquisitions by Kentucky One Health and Norton Healthcare will add to the medical facilities, career opportunities, training programs and services available to Spencerian students in the new location.
