In 2016, E&H completed phase I of a renovation project that re-purposed the former Smyth County Community Hospital building to serve as the home for the growing School of Health Sciences. In 2020, additional phase II renovations were completed to allow for additional programs and the School of Nursing. 

The main Health Sciences Building currently includes administrative and faculty offices, five classrooms, a large lecture hall, seven skills labs, two research labs, four student study areas, a library/resource room, a patient simulation lab that includes seven standardized patient rooms and three high-fidelity simulator rooms, and a community outreach center (Falls Prevention Center).

Smyth Hall was renovated in 2013 to house the University’s first health sciences graduate program, the Doctor of Physical Therapy. This building was further renovated in 2016 to accommodate the relocation of the Mel Leaman Free Clinic to the Emory & Henry Health Sciences Campus. Several instructional and research labs remain in Smyth Hall and are shared by all of the health sciences graduate programs.
