The College's growing pains didn't end with its move to the City Avenue campus in 1973. To help alleviate the need for space, PCOM purchased an adjacent office building at 4190 City Avenue in 1975.
The building, named Rowland Hall in honor of PCOM's fourth president Thomas M. Rowland Jr., is filled with medical practices including PCOM Healthcare Center - City Avenue Division, the Department of Psychology and numerous College offices such as Graduate Medical Education and the Bursar's Office. The first floor houses the Barnes & Noble College Bookstore, a bank, and PCOM Printing Services. Classrooms, study areas, a computer lab and medical offices are found throughout the building. Of special note is the fifth-floor Robert Berger, DO Clinical Learning and Assessment Center, a suite of exam rooms where students practice clinical and communication skills on actors posing as patients and on a state-of-the-art human patient simulator. The Simmy Ginsburg Robotic Simulation Suite was recently constructed and features advanced laparoscopic surgery simulators and critical care simulators.
Rowland Hall underwent extensive renovations in 1996-1997 as part of PCOM's Master Facilities Plan.
