Kudos to Oz for recognizing what no one else has: we are losing a huge opportunity to revitalize our urban centers and support mass transit when we invest $300 million in the UConn Health Center in Farmington. Putting a new facility in Hartford would provide riders for new transit services and put jobs near housing. Many hospital support staff positions are lower-pay jobs that could provide upward mobility for city residents without a highway commute.
