Conference and Event Planning
Welcome to the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences
Located in the "Health Hill" area of Michigan Street, the Center for Health Sciences takes our health education and research initiatives to a higher level. The Meeting and Event Planning office provides support for our internal faculty, staff and student meetings and events, as well as the education and health care community members. The event spaces in the facility accommodate groups as small as 5 and as large as 150 and are available for a variety of uses to community events with a health related focus, and Grand Valley groups. The private meeting rooms, multi-purpose room and formal auditorium lend themselves for a variety of functions.
All events held in the Center for Health Sciences must be academically related or have a health/medical related community focus. Our concentration is that of an academic facility accommodating students and we will use our discretion to determine what event is best suited for the facility. Our staff will assist you in determining the best campus location for your event.
All catering arrangements for meetings and events are handled through our offices by our experienced and knowledgeable staff. From boxed lunches to formal receptions, we are able to accommodate all of your catering needs. The building also houses The Recovery Room Cafe, by Bagel Beanery. The cafe, located in the lobby level, serves specialty coffee beverages, bagels, bagel sandwiches, Paninis, snacks, desserts and various other food and beverage items.
Not only does the Center bring together all of our health-related programs in a state-of-the-art facility, it serves as a catalyst for establishing unique partnerships with area hospitals, research organizations, and health care professionals. Students will enjoy the advanced learning opportunities made possible by these joint ventures. The building is home to Grand Valley's health curriculum, including the Kirkhof College of Nursing, and the College of Health Professions. Additional building occupants include the Grand Rapids African American Health Institute, the West Michigan Science and Technology Initiative, SmartZone tenants, and ELS Language Systems.
We look forward to hosting your next event!
