KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University trustees approved a sublease of space on the campus of Borgess Health to house a Psychiatric Clinic that is part of the Kalamazoo Center for Medical Studies--KCMS--which is merging into the WMU School of Medicine July 1.

A similar sublease has been in effect for a suite of offices at Borgess Health for a number of years. The new 10-year sublease is for space in Borgess' North Professional Building. The bylaws of the School of Medicine call for WMU, as the Class A member of the partnership developing the school, to authorize the lease of any real property for a period of more than 12 months.
