San Diego Union-Tribune

Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego will announce Monday that it’s receiving a donation of at least $120 million to create an institute capable of sequencing and analyzing the genome of every patient it receives, giving it an unusually broad ability to spot and treat disease through genetics.

Such a gift will be the second-largest non-bequest contribution to any group or institution in San Diego County history, matching or surpassing the $120 million that Irwin and Joan Jacobs gave to the San Diego Symphony in 2002.
