KU Hospital Receives Gifts For Expansion

KSAL StaffFebruary 17, 2014

The University of Kansas Hospital has received $3.5 million in private donations toward construction of a new facility.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the donations were announced Monday at a news conference at the hospital’s campus in Kansas City, Kan.

The hospital bought 14 acres of land near the campus in 2005 with the expectation of needing to accommodate more patients and surgery space. There’s no timetable yet for construction of what’s planned as a 92-bed facility.

Hospital spokesman Dennis McCulloch says the donations announced Monday are the first funds raised so far for the $250 million project. McCulloch says officials hope to raise $100 million in gifts.
