The Cheryl and Robert Greenwood, BSPHA’77 Family Pharmacy Skills Lab located in the Old Gym, also known as the Vinardi Center at 24th and Burt streets, is perhaps like no other space on Creighton’s campus. The over 100-year-old building has experienced such a variety of inhabitants and once held the home court for men’s basketball, women’s basketball and volleyball, and housed a pool for Creighton swimming and diving teams. Dances, commencements, class registrations and athletic practices were all held there; ROTC, the Athletic Department, a computer center and more have called it home. The sleek, tech-savvy lab accommodates 85 pharmacy students and has areas for sterile and nonsterile compounding, community pharmacy simulation and drug information activities. The lab also contains nine rooms for practicing patient counseling and is equipped to teach distance learners.

The Hixson-Lied Science Building is connected to Criss Health Sciences Complex and provides expansion space for functions of the health sciences programs. The Hixson Lied Science Building is comprised of heath science classrooms, undergraduate science departments, and administration and faculty offices of the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions.
