Shands HealthCare, Gainesville, Fla., announced plans for a new 200-bed tower for its 602-bed cancer hospital on the University of Florida Gainesville campus. Philanthropy will cover 15% to 20% of the $250 million to $300 million cost; the remaining financing will be a 30-year bond issue, Shands said. Construction is expected to begin in August. The tower is not subject to state certificate-of-need review because it is an expansion, Shands said. -- by Melanie Evans
