Billionaire David Koch and wife Julia have broken ground on a new outpatient center at New York–Presbyterian.

Koch donated $100 million to build the facility — the largest philanthropic gift in the hospital’s history, according to the New York Post.

The David Koch Center will operate cutting-edge ambulatory care when it opens on York Avenue between East 68th and East 69th streets in 2018.
