Amarillo College West Campus is a 42-acre site that was purchased in 1966 to become the School of Vocational Arts that opened with four buildings in September 1967. The school began with programs in auto mechanics, refrigeration and air conditioning, industrial welding, radio-television repair and servicing, and industrial electronics. In 1974 a new building opened for the School of Biomedical Arts and Sciences (SBAS). This housed the six allied health programs that included Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene, Medical Laboratory Technology, Medical Records Technology, Radiography and Respiratory Therapy. Previously these programs were scattered among buildings on the Washington Street Campus.

After a successful bond election in 1994, the West Campus expanded in 1996 to eight buildings that included the renovation of the SBAS building and a name change to the Allied Health Building and the addition of a Gym/Dance Building, Child Development Lab School and Lecture Hall that were completed in 1996. Health Science offerings were increased to 18 programs that today are Associate Degree Nursing, Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene, Emergency Medical Services Professions (Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technologists), Licensed Vocational Nursing, Medical Data Specialist, Medical Laboratory Technology, Mortuary Science, Nuclear Medicine Technology, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Physical Therapist Assistant, Pharmacy Technology, Radiography, Radiation Therapy, Respiratory Care, Sonography, and Surgical Technology.

 

Stephen Jones Hall opened in the Fall of 2010.  The three-story structure houses the associate degree nursing, dental assisting, dental hygiene, and licensed vocational nursing programs. The first floor includes a sixteen chair state-of-the-art dental clinic that provides preventive dental services to anyone who makes an appointment. These services are FREE to AC students and employees.
