KCU is closing in on $40 million in donations toward the planned development of a new college of osteopathic medicine in Joplin, Missouri. This additional campus location represents the first new medical school in Missouri in nearly 50 years.
The Regional Medical School Alliance, a not-for-profit foundation formed through an alliance of medical and community leaders in the Joplin area, has raised $29.6 million toward its $30 million pledge to KCU for the project. Additionally, an in-kind donation of land and former hospital building from Mercy Hospital Joplin is valued at $9.5 million.
