KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - The University of Kansas Hospital has received a $10 million challenge grant for a new expansion project.

The hospital announced Wednesday that it had received the grant from Kansas City civic leader Annette Bloch, president of the R.A. Bloch Cancer Foundation. The money is intended to support cancer programs at the new Cambridge North Tower.

The programs will include construction and technology for interventional labs and operating suites for surgical oncology.

The hospital announced the expansion earlier this year, with a goal of raising $100 million of the $279 million project through gifts and donations. The construction schedule depends on donations.
