Over the past several months, with considerable input from many faculty leaders, an Integration Agreement between Hartford Healthcare Corp. and the UConn Health Center was drafted. As you know, we are now waiting for legislative action to move forward with the Integration process.
In the meantime, I encourage you to read the executive summary and the Integration Agreement and learn more about this exciting opportunity to transform the Hartford area into a major destination for academic medicine. You can send comments directly to my blog.
Also, as a follow-up to discussions about the proposed Partnership and the Integration process, I will be scheduling a series of meetings, together with President Hogan, for medical school faculty members during the next two weeks. The meetings will be arranged by Department Chairs and Center Directors. In addition, Dean MacNeil, President Hogan and I will also meet with faculty from the School of Dental Medicine in the coming weeks.
