JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Mayo Clinic will get a brand new simulation center thanks to a healthy donation from Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver.
"This is not just for Mayo Clinic. They're going to share with the community," said Delores Weaver.
The Weavers joined clinic CEO Dr. Bill Rupp to announce a $7 million donation from Wayne and Delores that would go toward building a new simulation center that will bear the Weaver name.
"We're just fortunate that we have the ability to do things like this," said Wayne.
The new center, which is scheduled to open early next year, will use state-of-the-art robotics to teach medical students and professionals in a non-threatening environment. The Weavers say they're staying busy and enjoying their lives now that they no longer own the Jaguars.
"The truth is, this is our home," said Wayne. "As Delores said, we love this community and we want to continue to be a big part of it. I can say publicly now that I'm enjoying the games a little more, I'm not sitting on the edge of my seat. But we're still the #1 Jaguar fans."
They say they'll be spending some of their future free time traveling.
