The new $370 million Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center being built in Omaha will have two buildings named in honor of the other major donors to the project.
The University of Nebraska Medical Center said Tuesday it plans to name the hospital the CL Werner Cancer Hospital. The other main building will be called the Suzanne and Walter Scott Cancer Research Tower.
The overall cancer center will be named in honor of Warren Buffett's counsin, Fred Buffett, because his widow made a donation that was announced last week.
Officials have not disclosed the size of the donations UNMC has received for the cancer center.
The University of Nebraska Board of Regents will vote on the proposed names at its June meeting.
