Mercer Health Sciences Center
The Mercer University Health Sciences Center opened on July 1, 2012. The Health Sciences Center has campuses in Macon, Atlanta, Savannah and Columbus in the U.S. state of Georgia. The Mercer University board of trustees established the Health Sciences Center on April 20, 2012. The center provides centralized administration and unity of purpose for the university's programs in medicine, pharmacy, nursing, and health professions. The Health Sciences Center enrolls more than 1,700 students, employs more than 400 full-time faculty and staff, and graduates more than 500 physicians, nurses and nurse educators, physician assistants, pharmacists, physical therapists, family therapists, public health professionals, and biomedical scientists each year.
Regardless of how health care reform in this country is implemented over the next few years, one thing is certain: We must find ways to deliver patient care more effectively and efficiently. To meet the growing demand for access to health care as our population increases and ages, our health care professionals must learn to work together more effectively as a team.
The Mercer University Health Sciences Center was established to fill this critical demand by organizing our schools and colleges under the umbrella of the Mercer University Health Sciences Center.
