Couple donates $19M to Phoenix hospital

John and Doris Norton

PHOENIX -- A Phoenix hospital said it'll use an Arizona couple's $19 million donation to create a new center for lung, heart and esophageal medicine.

St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center's foundation received the donation from John and Doris Norton and the new center will be named after them.

The hospital said the donation is the largest in its history and one of the biggest ever given to an Arizona hospital.

According to the hospital's announcement, organ rejection will be a critical focus of the center that will be located in several buildings on St. Joseph's campus.
