KILGORE - The Kilgore College Board of Trustees has approved an agreement to convert 30,000 sf at the former Laird Memorial Hospital as a training site for nursing and other medical courses. The board set a $1.5 million cap for renovations to the space.

The sublease with Allegiance Specialty Hospital, which leases all 128,000 sf of the hospital at US 259 and Dudley Ln. from the city, will cost the college $125,400 annually.

The agreement ensures the college may use the space even if Allegiance ends its lease with the city, which still owns the building and ten-acre site.

Nursing, radiological technology, surgical technology and physical therapy assistant courses will move to the new site, according to College President Bill Holda. The move will free up 18,000 sf on campus for automotive technology and other courses.
