The summer of 2017 welcomed a new state-of-the-art cancer research and treatment center in Omaha, Nebraska- the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The Buffett Cancer Center was named after the late Fred Buffett, who lost his battle with cancer in 1997, and his wife Pamela. Fred is the first cousin of Warren Buffett.
Focused on providing the highest level of cancer care, the $276-million cancer center features three components: a 10-story, 252,000 square foot cancer research tower with 98 laboratories; a 7-story, 325,000 square foot, 108-bed hospital tower; and a multidisciplinary outpatient center. The Buffett Cancer Center is projected to bring in 1,200 jobs to the hospital, 4,600 new jobs to the metro, and bring in an estimated $537 million annually into the local economy.
