In Gov. Rick Scott's budget, the Legislature approved $60 million of annual funding for three cancer centers in Florida. One of the centers, the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami School of Medicine, will receive $16 million per year for five years.
Even before the funding the center made investments including hiring new physicians and researchers, and purchasing new equipment.
As Dr. Stephen Nimer says, the new personnel and machines help make the center "world class."
