University of Iowa Hospitals proposes 10-year expansion plan
AP/Chicago Tribune, February 8, 2008
University Hospitals has announced a 10-year expansion plan that includes a new children's hospital and major renovations at the main hospital in Iowa City. The plan would cost $700 million to $850 million, and funding would come from hospital revenues and private donations. The aging hospital's facilities need to be updated, especially as patient admissions increase and patient needs become more complex, University officials said.
