UConn officials urge $342 million for Dempsey Hospital

Hartford Courant, February 12, 2010

The University of Connecticut's president and medical school dean have recommended that UConn update John Dempsey Hospital and develop an academic campus that would include collaboration with other area hospitals. The proposed plan includes a "renewal" of Dempsey with updates to the existing building and new clinical space that would result in a hospital with 250 to 267 beds. The university would need $25 million over the next two years to plan it and the eventual capital investment would cost "in the range of" $332 million to $342 million, the Hartford Courant reports.
