The Governor and UConn unveiled their newest plan to revive John Dempsey Hospital at the UConn Health Center in Farmington. The $352 million plan will be funded with $100 million from national health reform, assuming it passes, and by re-directing $227 million from already-approved projects elsewhere. The cost is down from previous plans costing $430 million; this initiative includes partnerships with five area hospitals rather than only Hartford Hospital as in the original plan. The plan includes a new cancer center, simulation training program, bioscience zone, and primary care, clinical research translation, and health disparities institutes.
