UConn Health Center seeks hospital partners

Hartford Courant, July 30, 2008

The University of Connecticut Health Center has issued a four-page invitation to hospitals across the state, hoping at least one will step up and help pull the center out of its financial malaise. Without regional cooperation, the institution that includes the Connecticut's medical and dental schools, a multimillion-dollar research laboratory, and the John Dempsey Hospital will have to continue seeking millions in aid annually from taxpayers. UConn President Michael J. Hogan hopes at least one hospital will be willing to foot part of the bill for operations and to help rebuild the aging Dempsey Hospital on the Health Center's Farmington campus.
