UConn returns, again, for bailout from legislature
Hartford Courant, March 26, 2008
The financially troubled University of Connecticut Health Center is seeking a $22 million bailout from the state legislature to close its operating deficit. UConn officials say the 224-bed John Dempsey Hospital in Farmington is too small to make a profit. The hospital received a $20 million bailout in 2000, and got an infusion of more than $10 million in 2007 to help pay for fringe benefits that are more expensive than at similar hospitals because the Dempsey workers are state employees.
