UConn Health Center plan gets House boost

Hartford Courant, May 3, 2010

The future of the financially troubled University of Connecticut Health Center looked brighter after the state House of Representatives approved a new plan to improve the center's 35-year-old John Dempsey Hospital, the Hartford Courant reports. After three hours of debate, the House voted 109-34 for the measure. The bill now moves to the Senate, which could take it up as early as Monday. The money-losing health center has been bailed out multiple times by the legislature since 2000 because it could not meet its financial obligations without a state infusion of cash near the end of the fiscal year.
