Business students at Allen Community College have partnered with Allen County Regional Hospital, Gates Corporation, Russell Stover Chocolates and Thrive Allen County to draft a hypothetical business plan for an After Hours Clinic for downtown Iola. 

The project will span the entire spring semester, and will result in the students presenting the plan to the organizations as their final exam.

The idea came about through a conversation with Tony Thompson, chief executive officer of Allen County Regional Hospital, and Allen President John Masterson about providing care for students who were not connected to physicians in Allen County.
