Appalachian Regional Healthcare System pledges land for College of Health Sciences building

Appalachian Regional Healthcare System (ARHS) has pledged a nine-acre tract of land on the corners of State Farm and Deerfield roads to Appalachian State University and its real estate foundation, contingent on the university securing funds from the state of North Carolina to construct a permanent building for the College of Health Sciences.

Officials from Appalachian Regional Healthcare System (ARHS) have announced a pledge that will support construction of a health sciences complex to house Appalachian State University’s College of Health Sciences. ARHS will donate a nine-acre tract of land to the university if state funding is obtained to build the complex.

State funding would have to be obtained by the end of the university’s $200 million comprehensive fundraising campaign, the Campaign for Appalachian, which is scheduled to conclude Dec. 31, 2014.
