Palmer to Construct Chiropractic Learning Resource Center with New Clinic Facilities

The Chiropractic Learning Resource Center (CLRC) planned for construction on the Palmer College of Chiropractic campus will now include state-of-the-art outpatient clinic facilities, College officials have announced. Groundbreaking for the CLRC, to be located on the east side of Brady Street, will take place later this year with an anticipated completion date in 2007. The new building is the centerpiece of the College’s $35 million capital campaign, which has raised nearly $26 million in gifts and pledges and is now in its completion phase. College officials expect to complete the campaign by the end of 2006. “The new Chiropractic Learning Resource Center and its world-class clinic facility will further enhance the education students receive at Palmer,” said Palmer President Donald Kern, D.C. “We are so excited to add clinic facilities to this new building, which will be a focal point on campus, a crossroads for the entire profession, and will provide alumni, faculty, students and researchers with an educational resource found nowhere else in the chiropractic profession.” Preliminary plans call for the facility to include more than 40,000 square feet of space, which will be used to house: • Community outpatient clinic facilities • Clinical learning resources for students • Radiology services • Rehabilitation services • Visitor center The Palmer College capital campaign goals are as follows: • $12.9 million for Chiropractic Learning Resource Center • $7.1 million for revitalization of campus facilities • $5 million for annual operating funds • $10 million for cash and deferred endowment needs As part of total contributions to the campaign thus far, Palmer College has received $5.2 million in federal funding, of which $3.9 million has been designated for the CLRC. “We are so appreciative, amazed and humbled by the level of support we have received thus far in our capital campaign,” added Palmer’s Chief Development Officer Drew Boster. “Our alumni, friends, employees and the local community have been extremely generous with their gifts and their time in this endeavor. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our local alumni and community leaders who have been instrumental in our progress thus far. Reaching our goal will ensure that we continue to graduate the most talented and skilled chiropractors in the profession by giving them the best tools, education and inspiration here at The Fountainhead of chiropractic.”
