Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah expanded plans for a new cancer patient facility following a $30 million gift from the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. The contribution from Peter Huntsman and the family’s Huntsman Foundation will allow the planned HCI expansion to grow from 102,000 square feet of new space to 200,000 square feet, and from four to eight stories.
The latest Huntsman gift adds to the $40 million already raised by Huntsman Cancer Foundation to support the construction of the Kathryn F. Kirk Center for Comprehensive Cancer Care and Women’s Cancers at Huntsman Cancer Institute.
The new $129-million patient care facility will include four floors of clinical space, an expanded wellness center, two floors to house faculty offices, and two floors available for future build-out. Pending final approval by state and university entities, construction is slated to begin in December 2019, and the building is anticipated to open in September 2022.
