My friend, Bryan Carroll, writing or The Daily Campus, UCONN’s news paper has covered a few stories that deal with education and health, his latest on the subject of John Dempsey Hospital, which has been bleeding in its own way for several years. Carroll writes
An ad-hoc committee with appointed facility of the engineering, nursing and business schools on the respected campuses could provide innovative solutions to streamline the business structure at John Dempsey. The collective partnership of the university community would foster public support (and subsequently legislative support) for the final plan.
I wonder how Dempsey could be streamlined in so fa as care and business balance out. Do any hospitals actually see an even balance sheet, no matter how well they’re run?
Likewise, any university, private pr public? These institutions are interesting, especially in the face of the opportunity and service they provide.
