The funds are part of a $2 million campaign to be raised in the Paintsville area for capital expenses for the construction of the new school.

In honor of this donation, the pharmaceutics laboratory at the new Midway College School of Pharmacy will be named in honor of the hospital.

When completed, the new campus will offer 60,000 square feet of classrooms, laboratories, an auditorium and faculty offices and be a self-contained campus.
