Anonymous donor gives $1M for Ocean Medical Center expansion

Brick, N.J.-based Ocean Medical Center's cancer center expansion plan just got a $1 million injection from an anonymous donor, the hospital's foundation said Tuesday.

"Though this is an anonymous gift, it's our understanding that the donor lost a loved one to cancer and was inspired to give back as part of their healing process," said Joseph Stampe, president of Meridian Health Affiliated Foundations, which encompasses Ocean Medical Center's foundation, according to Asbury Park Press. "As we learn more about the health and healing benefits of giving, we hope this very special donor inspires others to honor loved ones in such a meaningful way."

Ocean Medical Center is planning a 22,200-square-foot renovation to the hospital's Brick campus and a 6,500-square-foot addition for outpatient treatment and services off campus. The new cancer center is projected to open in the fall of 2016, according to the report.
