A Kansas City couple has given a $1 million gift to the foundation for the Shawnee Mission Medical Center.

The medical center announced the gift from Benny and Edith Lee on Wednesday.

Benny Lee is chairman and chief executive officer of DuraComm Corp., which manufactures and distributes power supplies, lighting, solar power and other energy conservation products.

The Kansas City Star reports the atrium of the hospital's $44 million birth center will be named after the Lees. The birth center is scheduled to open in late February next year.

The center will have a capacity to care for 5,000 newborns and their mothers each year.

The hospital says the foundation has now raised more than $29.5 million toward its $30 million capital campaign.
