$362 million plan passes: UConn Health Center will get new hospital tower

Hartford Courant, May 5, 2010

The Connecticut Senate passed a $362 million measure to approve improvements at the University of Connecticut Health Center campus in Farmington. The bill now heads to Gov. M. Jodi Rell, who has pledged to sign it. The bill is expected to help the 35-year-old hospital by creating room for more expensive beds that would generate more revenue, said Sen. Mary Ann Handley, D-Manchester. The center includes John Dempsey Hospital as well as UConn's medical, dental, and graduate research programs. Plans also include a state-created network of area hospitals regarding cancer care and improvements at the Hospital of Central Connecticut, the Hartford Courant reports.
