Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell yesterday proposed the construction of a new hospital and health care facilities that would use $227 million of state general obligation bonds and other funding sources.

“This is a $352 million investment in a new hospital that will have increased classroom and lab space for more medical and dental students and will help offset anticipated shortages in these professions,” Rell said in a press release. “The return on our investment will include a nationally recognized cancer center and specialized institutes and advanced training open to all health care professionals in the state.”
