“We are proud to be a partner with South Plains College and the Levelland community,” said Robert Taylor, CEO for United Supermarkets LLC. “Levelland has been a community member of the United family for more than 50 years now.”
United’s gift was used to equip the 27-room nursing skills lab, a central component to the 36,000-s.f. facility for the college’s nursing programs, which will train more than 125 students each year.
The funds from United also were used to make a hospital suite of patient rooms. The 14 rooms are equipped with electric patient beds, low-fidelity Laerdal patient mannequins, wound treatment accessories for the mannequins, over-bed and bedside tables and intravenous solution stands.
Taylor hopes that over time the funds will help to expand the number of students training in the nursing and allied health fields, increase career opportunities for students and potentially the quality of healthcare in West Texas.
