Mayo Clinic Jacksonville to name building after donors who gifted $20M

Mayo Clinic Jacksonville (Fla.) will name a new cancer and neurology facility in honor of Harry Mangurian and his wife, Dorothy, whose foundation donated $20 million to support expansion projects at the hospital.

The cancer and neurology-focused medical building unites aspects of the Mangurians' life story. Mr. Mangurian died of leukemia in 2008 and Ms. Mangurian passed away in 2015, after she was diagnosed with a neurological condition called Lewy body dementia.

The 190,000-square-foot facility will house an oncology infusion center, larger neurology and neurosurgical departments and expanded hematology and oncology department.           

"We greatly appreciate this gift from the Mangurian Foundation. It will have a lasting impact on Mayo Clinic's efforts to deliver unparalleled care to patients who come to us with some very complex health issues," said Gianrico Farrugia, MD, vice president of Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic, and CEO of Mayo Clinic Jacksonville. "We … are honored that the legacy of the Mangurians will continue to make a difference in the lives of our patients for many years to come."
