The Health Sciences Center
Located directly on Georgia Avenue in south Silver Spring, the Health Sciences Center is home to many credit and noncredit health programs which are designed to meet the needs of health care providers in the Washington metropolitan area. These include nursing, diagnostic medical sonography, radiologic technology, polysomnography, health information technology, surgical technology and fire science. The Center is also home to a community clinic operated by Holy Cross Hospital, in partnership with the college. The community clinic addresses the growing shortage of health care professionals, particularly those who are well-trained to provide patient care for a diverse community, and offers accessible health services to the most vulnerable and under-served.
The community health clinic provides community access to quality clinical care and, at the same time, offers valuable community-based clinical experience for student nurses. Holy Cross Hospital personnel handles patient care and serve as clinical adjunct faculty, working side-by-side with College faculty in supervising and evaluating students.
