Health Science Center

Kilgore College opened its Health Science Center for the Fall 2014 semester, housing four health science programs under one roof for the first time in college history: Associate Degree of Nursing, Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiologic Science and Surgical Technology.

Located in a previously unused portion of Laird Memorial Hospital just adjacent to the Kilgore campus on Highway 259, KC is leasing a portion of the hospital that has been vacant for about nine years for the new Health Science Center.

Crews worked eight months on the $1.5 million renovation that houses 16 state-of-the art classrooms, laboratories, faculty offices and student lounges.

Students receive simulated on-the-job training since they are training in what was once a functioning hospital.

The renovated portion of the hospital being leased by the college accounts for about 30,000 square feet  which is a 12,000 square-foot increase from its previous location on campus.  Good Shepherd Medical Center and Allegiance Specialty Hospital are also use portions of the building next to the Health Science Center.
