The UConn Health Center will be opening a branch in Storrs Center.
The project is expected to be completed this December and will include services ranging from dermatology to physical therapy to urgent care. The center will also offer cardiology, occupational medicine, obstetric and gynecological services, as well as a full range of dental care to UConn students and the surrounding community.
The center will be 18,000 square feet and will cost about $4.36 million. It will help make medical care more available to students who cannot go home or drive to Farmington for the current center’s services.
Much like the Farmington location, the new branch will also serve an educational purpose for UConn’s medical and nursing students. Although the center will be staffed by faculty, students will be able to shadow and observe personnel at the Health Center throughout their academic program, just as they would in surrounding affiliated hospitals.
