Sedgwick Hall is home to the new School of Nursing and health sciences programs forged from a dynamic new alliance between Rockhurst University and Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City. The partnership complements Rockhurst’s existing College of Health and Human Services by adding new associate degree programs, and undergraduate and graduate nursing programs through Saint Luke’s College of Nursing & Health Sciences. Sedgwick Hall has transformed into a next-generation nursing and health sciences education facility with program spaces including active learning studios, nursing labs, a health assessment lab and home health lab, and a state-of-the-art simulation suite.
Constructed in 1914, Sedgwick Hall is the oldest and most historic structure on the campus. CO’s design emphasizes the original features and creates a space that fosters connection between the students and the building’s rich history. The overall planning and design hold true to the Jesuit values held by Rockhurst University. Approaching the design with simplicity and gratitude resulted in a meaningful connection between the historic existing structure and the new contemporary addition. Design Architect: CO Architects. Executive Architect: Helix Architecture + Design
