SALINA, Kan. (AP) - A foundation has donated $2 million to help with expansion plans at the University of Kansas-Salina Medical School.

The gift to the Salina Regional Health Foundation from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation was announced Wednesday. The gift goes toward a goal of $7.5 million for the expansion.

The Hansen Foundation has already donated thousands of dollars to the medical school.

The Salina Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2aOpyvr ) the medical school opened in 2011 in a former nursing school dormitory. The health foundation bought a former bank building to relocate the medical school.

Contracts for construction will be awarded in April. The medical school is expected to relocate in spring 2018, with classes beginning that June.
