It is expected to open in August 2019 for the fall 2019-2020 semester.

“This building is designed to meet the physical and mental wellness needs of all students and the fast-changing, academic needs of our health sciences students,” said Michael Graham, SJ, president of Xavier University. “Partnering with TriHealth, we know we can meet and exceed these goals.”

“This affiliation is so uniquely focused, like no other in the country, on caring for the whole person – mind, body and spirit,” said Mark Clement, TriHealth CEO and president. “Whether it starts in the classroom, leads to a great performance on the court, drives healthier behaviors or increases positive connections in the community, this affiliation will touch lives and transform people, not only on campus, but throughout the region and nation.”

In January 2017, Xavier and TriHealth announced a 10-year exclusive affiliation that includes building this national model of excellence for collegiate health and wellness. The affiliation builds on a 20-year relationship between TriHealth and Xavier and advances their shared mission to physically, mentally and spiritually improve the lives of those they serve.
