A major announcement expected today from Governor Malloy on the future of the UCOnn Health Center.
A press conference has been scheduled for 11:30 this morning, where the governor will outline a major overhaul of the institution, including expansion of the medical and dental schools, a parking garage and new patient tower.
The $864 million dollar plan more than doubles the previous one passed by lawmakers last year under former Gov. Jodi Rell. Lawmakers have debated for years how to increase UConn’s academic standing and make the hospital profitable.
