Arkansas college receives anonymous $15M donation to expand medical school

The Arkansas Colleges of Health Education in Fort Smith received an anonymous $15 million donation, which will fund an expansion for its new Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine.

The $15 million donation will establish a health science building, create a new research center and develop the 228 acres surrounding the medical campus.

"Our vision has always been ambitious, and we accomplished the first phase of that vision with building a state-of-the-art medical school facility and residential complex for our students," Kyle Parker, president and CEO of ACHE, said. "Through the generosity of an anonymous gift of $15 million, we are able to announce new facilities that help us expand our offerings and focus on service to the underserved in our state and region."

The osteopathic medical school will open July 31.
