Dedication of Creighton Hall

Health Professions Campus | 222 SE 8th Ave, Hillsboro, Ore.

All members of the University community are invited to celebrate the dedication of Creighton Hall on the Health Professions Campus of Pacific University.

The Board of Trustees has voted unanimously in May 2009 to name the current building on the Health Professions Campus "Phillip D. Creighton Hall." This honor recognizes Dr. Creighton's extraordinary vision to the establish the campus.

Dr. Creighton announced his retirement from Pacific in fall 2008 and has served the university for 6 years. During that time Pacific has experienced tremendous growth and accomplishments.  In his tenure, the school has added graduate programs in Dental Health Sciences, Pharmacy, and Healthcare Administration.

Creighton was integral in construction and development of the first LEED-certified building on Health Professions Campus, which is one of five LEED certified buildings to the University's credit.

The building is located along the south side of Washington Street and MAX light rail midway at 8th Avenue in Hillsboro, Ore. near the Tuality Community Hospital. It opened its doors to serve the College of Health Professions in 2006.

The schools of Dental Health Science, Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant Studies, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Professional Psychology, and Healthcare Administration are located on the Health Professions Campus.

The 105,000-square foot building also houses the Virginia Garcia Clinic, The Hillsboro Eye Clinic, SPP Iris Clinic and the Dental Health Clinic.

In 2006, Dr. Creighton spoke of many wishes for the building."May this campus serve as a shining example of what different institutions can accomplish by collaborating to provide health services and education to our community," he said, referring to Tuality Healthcare and the Virginia Garcia Center. "It is not always a comfortable thing to do, but when organizations truly work together, the results can be remarkable."

Please join members of the Pacific University and Hillsboro communities in celebration. A reception will follow the ceremony.
