A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for the inauguration of the new, five-story building of the Faculty of Health Sciences at Semmelweis University, which is more than 4500 square metres in size and is named after Zsuzsanna Kossuth, the country’s first head nurse. The new wing will house two large lecture halls, skill labs and classrooms to support practical teaching. The investment was necessitated by the faculty’s ever-expanding training portfolio and the increase in student numbers.

The inauguration of the new building is a milestone in the history of the Faculty of Health Sciences (ETK), where many innovative educational concept can be implemented, said Dean Dr. Gabriella Dörnyei in her opening speech.

“the faculty has nearly 3,600 students, whose plenary lectures can be organised more efficiently in the 300 and 178-seat lecture halls. As for the well-equipped, new skill laboratories, they will provide a higher level of training, in line with Semmelweis University’s practice-oriented strategic educational goals”– said the dean, adding that the modern, 21st century environment will be an ideal venue for conferences and other professional events. She recalled that the ETK got ahold of the first renovated wing at the Vas Street block in 2001, then in 2004 teaching started in the second part of the building, and now the building complex between Szentkirályi Street and Vas Street is complete.

The Faculty of Health Sciences is the second largest faculty of Semmelweis University, which provides one of the broadest spectrum of health sciences education in the Central European region, Dr. Béla Merkely pointed out in his welcome speech. The Rector stressed that the ETK is not only outstanding in terms of its size, but also in terms of its dynamic development – regarding the number of students, the number of courses and the expansion of international relations. Thanks to the new building, the venue and infrastructure is now on par with this. He explained that the new wing will make the Vas utca complex a stronghold of Hungarian health sciences education in every respect; the investment will enable the faculty to fully support its current and expanding training portfolio, to provide higher quality training for a larger number of students and to further increase the number of foreign students.

Dr. Béla Merkely also said that the comfort and well-being of students and an inspiring environment in general are essential for a quality education, which is reflected by the building’s community spaces besides the lecture halls. “The competitiveness of ETK, and thus of Semmelweis University, will be further strengthened in Hungary and abroad. We are once again closer to achieving our important goal of becoming one of the TOP 100 universities in the world and one of the 5 best medical universities in Europe”, he said.

The Rector also added that by naming the new educational building after Zsuzsanna Kossuth, the university pays tribute to Hungary’s first head nurse, the founder of the nursing profession in Hungary.

“Those who are well versed in innovation are fully aware that it is worth investing in the future, and it is precisely those developments that help the given profession to the forefront represent the best investments,” said Dr. László Palkovics, Minister of Innovation and Technology

The investment was made possible due to the preparatory and construction work of Semmelweis University and the government support of nearly 6 billion HUF, which enabled the project to be completed in 2 years, he said. The minister stressed that the Faculty of Health Sciences is part of the change of gear that characterizes higher education today, and that it can move up the rankings at an even faster pace from now on.

Dr. László Palkovics also mentioned that Semmelweis University is at an impressive position within the field of education, research, innovation and medicine, and reminded that in one year, it has moved up 149 places in the international ranking Times Higher Education. He stressed that the university has taken a leading role at national level in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic from the very beginning, for which he expressed his gratitude.

At the event, Dr. László Palkovics, Dr. Béla Merkely, Dr. Gabriella Dörnyei and Dr. Mihály Medvigy, CEO of the Investment, Technical Development, Sports Operation and Public Procurement Ltd. officially inaugurated the building with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Then the memorial plaque of Zsuzsanna Kossuth, the eponym of the new wing was unveiled by Dr. László Palkovics on behalf of the Ministry of Innovation and Technology, and Dr. Béla Merkely on behalf of the University. In the name of the faculty, flowers were laid by Dr. Gabriella Dörnyei, Dean of the Faculty and Dr. Zsolt Nagy Zoltán Zsolt, former Dean of the Ophthalmology Clinic.

“那些精通创新的人都充分意识到,对未来进行投资是值得的,而正是那些帮助特定行业走在前沿的发展才是最好的投资,”创新和创新部长 László Palkovics 博士说。由于塞梅尔维斯大学的筹备和建设工作以及政府近60亿福林的支持,使该项目能够在2年内完成,因此投资成为可能。这位部长强调,健康科学学院是当今高等教育变革的一部分,从现在开始,它可以以更快的速度提升排名。

László Palkovics 博士还提到塞梅尔维斯大学在教育、研究、创新和医学领域的地位令人印象深刻,并提醒说,在一年时间里,它在泰晤士高等教育国际排名中上升了 149 位。他强调,学校从一开始就在全国抗击新冠肺炎疫情中发挥带头作用,对此表示感谢。

在此次活动中,László Palkovics 博士、Béla Merkely 博士、Gabriella Dörnyei 博士和投资、技术开发、体育运营和公共采购有限公司首席执行官 Mihály Medvigy 博士正式为大楼举行了剪彩仪式。随后,新翼的名字 Zsuzsanna Kossuth 的纪念牌匾由 László Palkovics 博士代表创新和技术部揭幕,Béla Merkely 博士代表大学揭幕。学院院长 Gabriella Dörnyei 博士和眼科诊所前院长 Zsolt Nagy Zsolt Zsolt 博士以学院的名义献上了鲜花。活动之际,眼科学院院长向 László Palkovics 博士、Béla Merkely 博士、Lívia Pavlik 博士、Mihály Medvigy 博士、Éva Feketéné 博士、战略副校长 Éva Feketéné 博士颁发了 Zsuzsanna Kossuth 纪念奖章和发展,Éva Szabó 博士和 Zsolt Nagy 博士。
