    South Plains College’s Center for Allied Health slates Open House on Aug. 21

    LEVELLAND – South Plains College will host an Open House for the new Center for Allied Health Education with a Dedication Ceremony and Ribbon Cutting at 2 p.m. on Aug. 21. The facility is located at 202 Clubview Drive.

    “We know that 80 percent of nursing graduates from South Plains College stay here, work here and live here in our region where they provide quality care for our citizens,” said Dr. Kelvin Sharp, President of South Plains College.

    The new Center now houses the college’s associate degree nursing, vocational nursing and physical therapist assistant programs. It will enable the two nursing programs to increase the number of students admitted into the programs by 50 percent.

    The Dedication Ceremony will include remarks from Mike Box, chairman of the South Plains College Board of Regents and Dr. Kelvin Sharp, president of the college. Officials from United Supermarkets will also be recognized for their support of the project through a $150,000 contribution to equip the nursing skills lab.

    Members of the Levelland Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors will host a ribbon-cutting to officially open the Center. Tours will follow the program until 4 p.m. The public is invited to attend the event.

    The $150,000 grant from United Supermarkets has been used to equip the nursing skills lab that is a central component to the 36,000 square foot facility for the college’s nursing programs. The funds have been used to make a hospital suite of patient rooms. The 14 patient rooms are equipped with electric patient beds, low fidelity Laerdal patient mannequins, wound treatment accessories for the mannequins, overbed and bedside tables and intravenous solution stands.

    “When you walk into our skills labs, it will be like you are walking onto the floor of one of our local hospitals,” said Sue Ann Lopez, dean of health occupations at South Plains College. “Our nursing faculty has carefully chosen the equipment that will be used to teach students care and treatment procedures. We are excited that our faculty can deliver a quality learning experience for our students. It will only make them better nurses.”

    South Plains College acquired a former grocery store space in Gentry Square located west of the Levelland Campus and adjacent to the community’s medical district. The $3 million renovation project features seven modern classrooms, three separate skills labs, an audio-video observation and recording suite, two computer testing labs and faculty offices and a capacity to accommodate more than 250 students each semester.
