Proposal makes UConn Health Center, Hartford Hospital partners

Hartford Courant, February 4, 2009

University of Connecticut officials touted an ambitious proposal to partner the financially troubled University of Connecticut Health Center with Hartford Hospital, a plan that promises to end the Health Center's habit of seeking taxpayer bailouts. But the plan also would require the state to come up with $475 million for a new hospital and spend $13 million a year in labor costs. The partnership would create a "University Hospital," and transform the Health Center from one of the smallest academic hospitals in the country to part of a major regional health center.
