Why A New Health Sciences Center?


Seton Hill’s programs in the sciences have been a hallmark of the school since its inception. Patricia Gabow, M.D. (SHU 1965) a member of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Board of Trustees and the recently retired CEO and medical director for the Denver Health and Hospital Authority, refers to her Seton Hill biology professor, Sr. Florence Marie Scott, as “an outstanding role model.” Herself a graduate of Seton Hill, Sr. Florence Marie also served as a Trustee of the Marine Biological Laboratory in Massachusetts, where she spent 32 summers conducting research.

Today, the health sciences continue to represent some of the university’s strongest academic programs. Seton Hill’s Physician Assistant Program boasts a 97% first- time graduate pass rate on the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE); this program has also been named one of the best graduate schools for health by U.S. News & World Report. As enrollments in the health sciences continue to increase, the university is dedicated to providing students with the facilities and resources to match the caliber of its programs.
