Mayo Clinic plans to use a $32 million philanthropic gift to construct a four-story research building in Rochester.
The money comes from the New York-based Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation, which is named for two former Mayo Clinic patients.
Stephen Kellen, who was chief executive of an investment firm based in New York, and his wife represent the first of four generations in their family who have received care at Mayo, according to a news release issued this week by the clinic.
Dr. Gianrico Farrugia, the Mayo Clinic chief executive, said in a statement: “This remarkable gift will allow us to meet a critical need for research space on our Rochester campus.”
Clinic officials say planning efforts this year will determine specific uses for the new building. Construction is expected to begin next year with occupancy scheduled for 2022.
