Healthcare Education Institute (H.E.I.) at the DuPage Convalescent Center

Healthcare Education Center

The proposed Healthcare Education Institute (H.E.I.) at the DuPage County Convalescenct Center on County Farm Road will improve access to health careers education through an innovative partnership between DuPage County and College of DuPage. The proposed center will create a community-based, flexible mix of classroom, lab and clinical training spaces to meet the changing needs of the health careers field. The concept will be based on a “teaching hospital” concept to focus on holistic health maintenance education within a post-acute facility.

On February 17, 2005, the Board of Trustees approved and adopted an Intergovernmental Agreement with the County of DuPage for the design phase of the renovation of one wing of the Convalescent Center. Once the renovation is complete, C.O.D. will lease the space from the county.

C.O.D. and DuPage County are currently in the A/E selection process. Both C.O.D. and the county are also actively pursuing sources of external funding and grants.
