UConn trying new approach to resolve cash-strapped health center
The University of Connecticut is looking for a collaborative solution to resolve the long-running problem of its cash-strapped health center in Farmington. The new strategy marks a change from 2007 when UConn broke off talks with area hospitals in a go-it-alone strategy and then tried unsuccessfully to get the legislature to approve the new hospital plan. In a high-level meeting this week, the top leaders of UConn, Hartford Hospital, and St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center met to discuss the matter. The meeting included a review of a detailed, 26-page outline of St. Francis' vision for the future of John Dempsey Hospital and the UConn Health Center.
