The Arkansas Colleges of Health Education in Fort Smith has announced a $15 million gift from an anonymous donor in support of new facilities at its medical school.

The gift will help fund four construction projects at the Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine, including a new 60,000-square-foot Health Sciences Building, phase two of a student housing complex, a 7,000-square-foot research center, and a 228-acre development zoned for mixed use.

"Our vision has always been ambitious, and we accomplished the first phase of that vision with the building of a $40 million, 102,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art medical school facility and a residential complex for our students," said ACHE president and CEO Kyle Parker. "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."
