Ponce Health Sciences University (PHSU) has announced plans for a new $80 million medical school campus to be built in the heart of M Property Services’ NorthSide Regeneration development in North St. Louis. 

The campus will expand PHSU’s current educational program in St. Louis by offering a M.D. program. The school will support up to 1,200 students and create up to 120 staff and faculty positions. The school will be located in North St. Louis near Jefferson and Cass Avenues on the former Pruitt-Igoe site.

The project is slated to begin construction in late 2020 or early 2021 and is tentatively scheduled to open in fall 2022.
