LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles developer Rick Caruso and his wife, Tina, are donating $25 million to the University of Southern California after doctors at the university helped their 15-year-old daughter hear for the first time last year.

The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/1HMyxod ) Gianna Caruso struggled with mild to moderate hearing loss since birth before doctors inserted a new hearing device, known as a Lyric hearing aid, into her ear canal.

The couple is donating to a department at the university’s Keck School of Medicine and a related clinic that aids children with hearing loss.

Both the clinic and the department will be named after the Carusos.

Rick Caruso is the chief executive of the firm that developed the Grove in Los Angeles and the Americana at Brand in Glendale.
