Billionaire and Citadel CEO Ken Griffin has donated $25 million to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, one of the largest single donations in the hospital’s 72-year history.

The money will help fund a five-story surgical tower, now under construction and set to open in 2024. The tower, which will be named the Kenneth C. Griffin Surgical Tower, will house pre-and post-surgical care suites, and will utilize the latest tech to boost patient care, including robotics, augmented and virtual reality.

The hospital says Griffin’s donation will help support its pediatric care for the brain, cancer, blood disorders, the heart and orthopedics.
