Nazareth College announces name for new institute

Nazareth College unveiled the name of its new $16.5 million home for all of its health and wellness disciplines Friday.

The York Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute pays tribute to four generations of the York family and their support of health care, Nazareth College president Daan Braveman said.

The York Institute, which opened this fall, doubles the School of Health and Human Services clinic and collaboration space to 66,700 square feet. The expansion and reconfiguration is expected to boost enrollment by some 30 percent, college leaders said.

Frank York, a Nazareth College board member, served as co-chairman of the institute’s advisory council and was involved in the building’s vision, renovation and expansion.

“The York family is honored to support Nazareth College in preparing the next generation of health care professionals while recognizing the generations of dedicated and caring professionals who came before them,” York said. “We are committed to the future of the profession by helping to give pioneering young minds a state-of-the-art facility in which to learn their skills.”

Through coursework at the York Institute, leaders said, the center will help facilitate student and faculty research through proximity and new meeting spaces to improve health and wellness outcomes and clinical practice.
