St. Petersburg Times, February 14, 2008
The University of South Florida medical school wants to build its own teaching hospital to recruit more high-profile faculty members, increase the number of its residents and generate revenue. A bill filed for the upcoming legislative would allow USF to build a hospital on its campus without getting key permission from state regulators. USF medical school is one of the few medical schools in America that doesn't have its own hospital, said a Florida legislator who sponsored the bill.
