KU Med Center gets $25 million gift

May 21, 2014

— Officials with the University of Kansas Medical Center say a $25 million donation from the Hall Family Foundation will allow the center to construct a medical education building.

The foundation’s donation, announced Tuesday, will be the lead gift for the $75 million building on the Kansas City, Kan., campus.

The medical center has sought to build in the education center for years, saying its accreditation was threatened by its current outdated structure.

The Kansas City Star reports the new building will allow the medical center to train more students in updated facilities that reflect modern teaching methods.

Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said the Hall Family’s donation made construction of the building possible.
