A Blood Cancer Healing Center will open at the University of Cincinnati in 2024 thanks in part to a $15 million donation from some familiar faces.
An illustrious Cincinnati couple, Craig and Frances Lindner will be honored in a University of Cincinnati medical facility after gifting millions to help build out the project and bring in a world-renowned physician researcher.
UC’s board of trustees approved the naming of the Craig and Frances Lindner Atrium in the former Shriners Hospital for Children building, which the university is spending $74 million to remodel into its new Blood Cancer Healing Center on the school’s east campus.
The facility is intended as a destination care center for treatment and research of blood cancers.
