Work halts at Hartford, CT, hospital site
Hartford Courant, March 31, 2008
Construction on a patient care tower at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford, CT, has been temporarily halted after the work threatened the structural integrity of an adjacent building. Hospital officials doubted that the additional site work would add significantly to the projected $102 million cost of the 10-story building, which is to house a larger emergency room, more operating suites and additional in-patient rooms. No patients at the hospital have been impacted by the problem.
