September 6, 2016 - The Jupiter Medical Center Foundation in Jupiter, Florida, has announced
a $25 million gift from an unnamed donor toward construction of a comprehensive
cancer institute at Jupiter Medical Center.
The largest gift in the foundation’s history and the lead gift in
its $300 million comprehensive campaign will be used to expand access
to health care in the region and fulfill the vision outlined in the center’s
strategic plan. When completed, the institute will serve as a center of
research and cancer care excellence for the region.
Coupled with a previous $5 million pledge from Peter and Missy Crisp, the
foundation has raised more than half the $50 million it needs to build
“We are incredibly thankful to this donor, who recognized the critical
need to bring unparalleled medical services closer to home here in Palm
Beach County and wanted to make a significant contribution to make that
possible,” said Liv E. Veseley, president of the Jupiter Medical
Center Foundation. “We are now challenging the community to help
us raise the remaining $20 million to build the Comprehensive Cancer Institute.”
