UC medicine lists four priorities
Cincinnati Enquirer, January 30, 2008
With its major sources of funding flattening out, the University of Cincinnati plans to restructure its healthcare and medical operations and raise hundreds of millions of dollars to pay for it. University Hospital, the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and UC Physicians are finalizing a strategic plan to target four areas for clinical investment: cancer, neuroscience, cardiovascular disease and metabolic disorders including diabetes and obesity. The plan already is a focus of UC's $800 million capital campaign and critical to the university's future. The Academic Health Center, which includes the colleges of Medicine, Allied Health Sciences, Nursing and Pharmacy, University Hospital and several other parts, supports a budget of nearly $500 million.
