Nursing School expansion underway thanks to Hospital Foundation

Tyler County Booster

Tyler County Hospital Nursing school has the kind of problem anyone running this kind of program wants: they are respected enough that far more people apply to the school than they have room to accept. And it’s been this way for years. In an effort to add a little more space to accept more students, Tyler County Hospital Foundation Board held a special called meeting on December 8, 2010 to consider a request from Lloyd Hendrix, Chairperson of Tyler County Hospital District Board of Managers. Hendrix had secured $20,000.00 to expand the nursing school 1,000 square feet. This will allow the school in 2012 to accept 82 students. Currently the school accepts 72 students. Hendrix asked the Foundation for $29,499.00 to complete this expansion project. The Foundation approved this request. This addition began December 17, 2010 and is to be completed by January 6, 2011. The new class begins January 7, 2011. Tyler County Hospital is grateful to the contributors and Tyler County Hospital Foundation for making a dream a reality.
