New Connecticut hospital proposal still in limbo

Hartford Courant, June 4, 2009
The Connecticut legislative session ended with no final action on a proposed plan for the future of the ailing University of Connecticut Health Center. The proposal called for merging the financially troubled Health Center with Hartford Hospital and building a new $475 million hospital in Farmington to replace John Dempsey Hospital. UConn and Hartford Hospital officials touted the plan as a way to bolster the region's economy, transform the healthcare landscape, and address persistent problems at the Health Center and at Dempsey Hospital. But the plan ran into fierce opposition.
