$115-Million Gift to Establish Toronto Heart-Health Center

Three Toronto medical and educational institutions will share a $115-million donation from the family of a late media mogul to fund a new center for cardiac health, Canada's National Post writes. The Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research will be named for the cable-television magnate, who was being treated for a heart condition when he died in 2008 at age 75.

The Hospital for Sick Children, University Health Network, and the University of Toronto will match the support from the Rogers family. The new institution aims to improve cardiac health across all age groups and will establish an innovation fund to develop next-generation therapies for heart failure.
