Photo Feature: Departments Settle in Centennial Building
Faculty members from 12 academic departments in the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison are now working comfortably in their new offices in the recently opened UW Medical Foundation Centennial Building (MFCB).
The $39 million building, a gift of the UW Medical Foundation, commemorates the medical school's recent 100th anniversary.
In addition to faculty offices, the MFCB houses a data center and administrative areas for 10 medical school clinical departments previously located within University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, freeing up hospital space to be used for future inpatient and outpatient services.
The seven-story structure includes an enclosed walkway from the second floor that connects to the hospital's former emergency department entrance. A landscaped courtyard frames the historic Keystone House.
The Medical Foundation Centennial Building features many design ideas and building systems that make it energy efficient, respectful of the environment and healthy for occupants. In recognition of these features, the building has been awarded a LEED gold rating.
