Pact to build new pediatric unit at Phoenix hospital

Arizona Republic, August 5, 2010

Phoenix Children's Hospital and the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix have reached a pact that would share resources to fund medical education, pediatric care and research. The Arizona Board of Regents Thursday is expected to vote on the alliance that would establish a new academic pediatric department affiliated with the medical school but located at Phoenix Children's Hospital, according to a Board of Regents' document. The pact calls for the hospital to provide some revenue to the medical school. In turn, the university would provide money through the state's Medicaid program to support the hospital's graduate medical education efforts. Phoenix Children's Hospital representatives say the pact, approved by the hospital's board last week, benefits both the hospital and medical school.
