Western Michigan University has announced it will name its new medical school for Stryker Corporation founder Dr. Homer Stryker.

At a press conference today, WMU president John Dunn said Stryker’s granddaughter Ronda Stryker and her husband were the source of a previously anonymous $100 million donation to the school several years ago. Dunn added that Stryker has given an additional gift to the school but asked the amount not be disclosed. 

The medical school is set to open in September.
