The Jupiter Town Council on Tuesday will consider a proposal by the Jupiter Medical Center to nearly quadruple the size of its cancer treatment center.

Jupiter Medical Center has received a $25 million donation for its cancer treatment center from an unidentified donor.

The 207-bed nonprofit hospital wants to expand its 20,000-square-foot cancer treatment center by 54,300 square feet.

Now known as the Foshay Cancer Treatment Center, the expanded facility would be renamed the Anderson Family Cancer Institute.

Davis & Stokes Collaborative designed the three-story building that would house the expanded cancer treatment center.

The new building would rise on a surface parking lot with 32 spaces. Jupiter Medical Center just bought 6.1 acres north of its campus at 1240 Old Dixie Highway for another parking lot and additional facility development.
