Memorial Hospital will add a new 7-story cardiac patient tower and a new entrance as part of its $318 million upgrade underway.

Memorial Hospital has announced the naming of its new pulmonary care center - part of its $318 million expansion - as the Buz Standefer Lung Center at Memorial.

The family of Standefer, who died of lung cancer in 2011, donated $1 million to the center in his memory.

The center will feature lung screening and diagnostic tools that include a digital chest X-ray, a testing lab, the latest ultrasound technology and a team of doctors and nurses to help coordinate patient care.
