Project Size:
70,000 sq ft

The Clemson University Center for Nursing, Health Innovation, and Research (CUSON) is a four-story, 78,255 sq ft clinical learning and research building at Greenville Health System (GHS) that offers a hospital-like environment with virtual reality IV simulators and high-fidelity human patient simulators, classrooms, and offices. The building includes space for academic collaboration. More than 90 Clemson faculty health researchers are working across the GHS campuses with clinicians on projects that have immediate potential impact for patients.

The building cost of approximately $22 million was funded by Hughes Development Corp., which holds a ground lease with GHS for the property where the building is located. GHS anticipates more than $33 million in savings from reductions in supplemental staffing, nurse turnovers, and residency/training programs in the next 10 years thanks to the program.
