In 2022, Palmer Florida will celebrate its 20th anniversary in Port Orange, Florida, as well as a fourth academic building that will help the college meet the demands of increasing student numbers.

The $ 12 million space will span 33,000 square feet over two floors and will feature larger anatomy through four classrooms that can accommodate up to 130 students, additional engineering rooms for students to learn and practice the hands-on nursing they will provide upon graduation have a learning environment as well as virtual and augmented reality learning tools.
“At Palmer Florida we hope to expand the chiropractic profession not just in the Southeast but across the country,” said Palmer Florida’s President Peter Martin, DC. The building will meet both the immediate and long-term needs of the college’s growing student body. ”
The new laboratories are specially designed for students to apply what they have learned about movement science and rehabilitation in an ideal, technically advanced environment. The building will be filled with windows that let in natural light and there will be an extended terrace next to the campus pond for students to relax and study on.
“Palmer is chiropractic,” says Avalon Liscio, a student from Palmer Florida. “Here I know that everyone wants me to be successful. We also push each other to be the best. It’s great to know that my college wants to invest in my future with new academic space. “
Construction is scheduled to be completed in autumn 2021. This project is made possible by generous donations from alumni and friends of the college.
