U of M plans to upgrade medical facilitiesby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
Top officials at the University of Minnesota are considering a plan to upgrade the University's medical facilities that could cost more than $500 million. The 10-year plan would move all hospital care to campus, and would close the Riverside branch of the Fairview-University Medical Center. It would also include a new children's center and a new outpatient clinic. The plan still needs to be finalized, and approved by the University of Minnesota Board of Regents. Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer spoke with Dr. Frank Cerra, the University's senior vice president of health sciences.
