Contribution from the University of South Alabama Foundation Will Help Make Medical Sciences Building Expansion a Reality

A $30 million contribution from the University of South Alabama Foundation will help fund a major expansion of the USA College of Medicine Medical Sciences Building.

The contribution, to be given over six years, is in addition to the Foundation’s annual contribution to the University. It is funded in part from conveyance to the University of 45 acres of wetlands at the Brookley Property (valued at $2 million) and a 50-acre parcel of highly developable property adjacent to Brookley Aeroplex (valued at $9 million).

The renovation and expansion includes:

  • Thorough renovation of the existing Medical Sciences Building
  • Building out third-floor space in the Health Simulation Building for a Simulation Lab
  • Design and construction of a new addition to the Medical Sciences Building
  • Upgrading of utilities at the site to accommodate new facility needs

President of the Foundation Board of Directors, John McMillan, said the $30 million contribution supports the Foundation’s mission.

“One of the basic tenets of the mission of the Foundation is to assist the University in supporting its academic programs,” President McMillan said. “The University of South Alabama continues to be a transformational institution for the Gulf Coast region, the State of Alabama, and the southeastern United States. Its College of Medicine serves as the core to USA Health,” he said.
