Phoenix philanthropist donates $5 million to invest in future of medicine in Arizona


Doris Norton donated $5 million to Creighton University and Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center.

Of Norton’s gift, $3 million will support development of Creighton’s HealthSciences – Phoenix Campus, a 180,000-square foot building opening in 2021 to serve nearly 900 students. The remaining $2 million will be allocated to St. Joseph’s endowment scholarships for Creighton students entering the nursing field.

Arizona faces a boom in population and shortfall in medical professionals. Creighton will help the state confront these challenges through expanded education, invigorating Arizona’s health care infrastructure with physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, physical therapists, occupational therapists and more.

– Father Daniel Hendrickson, Creighton University
