Utah City developers Make $20M Land Donation to the Huntsman Cancer Institute
Along with the land, the project has also received large donations from the Huntsmans, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and others totaling $300 million. They hope the final $75 million needed will come in the form of a grant from the Utah Legislature. That would allow them to break ground by the end of the year.
The institute’s CEO, Mary Beckerle, said they’re excited to be building a new facility to better accommodate patients from across the state.
“We have done some really powerful scientific analysis here at Huntsman Cancer Institute that has revealed that individuals in the state of Utah that come from rural ZIP codes have worse cancer outcomes than patients that live in metropolitan areas,” Beckerle said.
