It all starts with a vision. In this case, a multidisciplinary, singularly focused cancer center – with a research tower, inpatient cancer and outpatient cancer areas. The new $323 million Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center, the largest project ever on campus, was named in recognition of a gift from Pamela Buffett, through her foundation, the Rebecca Susan Buffett Foundation.

The project will create thousands of jobs citywide in construction and other industries. In addition, approximately 1,200 jobs will be needed at the medical center – each with an average salary of approximately $70,000. In total, the project will provide 4,657 new jobs to the metro area, infusing $537 million annually into the economy on an on-going basis.
