Economy forces change in University of Iowa hospital expansion
AP/Chicago Tribune, February 11, 2009
A project to expand University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics has been altered because of the economy. Officials say the project has been split into two phases and it won't be known until June 30 whether the first phase will move forward immediately or be delayed. The first phase of the project is a new Children's Hospital tower, remodeling of operating rooms, and construction of an ambulatory care clinic. The price of the first phase is less than $500 million.
