Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine at Chaffee Crossing
02 Apr, 2014
In February, the Fort Chaffee Redevelopment Authority (FCRA) board voted to convey 200 acres of real estate to the Fort Smith Regional Healthcare Foundation (FSRHF) for a proposed school of osteopathic medicine at Chaffee Crossing in Fort Smith, Ark.
“This is very exciting for our board,” said Ivy Owen, executive director, FCRA. “Chaffee Crossing is the perfect place for a medical school. It will be near I-49 and I-40, providing access easy for faculty and students and ultimately access to the highest quality medical care for the people of western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma. The land that the FCRA board donated for the school is located in both cities of Fort Smith and Barling. This is great news for everyone in this region.”Illustration by Gualberto107 at Free Digital Photos.net
