Connecticut Children's Medical Center Plans $10M Farmington Surgery Center
Hartford Business report.
The proposed 18,321-square-foot facility would add up to four operating rooms for outpatient surgery and give the medical center one of its largest locations outside the main campus in Hartford. The project would require approval from the Office of Health Care Access and could start construction by February.
According to hospital officials, the new surgery center is needed because of increased demand to have pediatric care delivered by pediatric specialists rather than general physicians. The hospital's market share of outpatient surgery patients up to age 17 grew from 24 percent in 2006 to 31 percent in 2011.
