University of Connecticut Health Center
The UConn Health Center is a vibrant, integrated academic medical center that is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its founding in 2011 during a time of promise and growth in its clinical, research and educational realms.
Based in Farmington, Connecticut – a popular suburb of the state’s capitol of Hartford – the UConn Health Center is home to the School of Medicine, School of Dental Medicine, John Dempsey Hospital, UConn Medical Group, UConn Health Partners, University Dentists and a thriving research enterprise, which now includes the new Cell and Genome Sciences Building.
With approximately 5,000 employees, the UConn Health Center is a major economic driver in the region, generating nearly $1 billion annually in gross state product. It is closely linked with the University of Connecticut’s main campus in Storrs through multiple, cross-campus academic and administrative projects. In fact, the UConn Health Center represents half of the University: half of its budget; half of its employees and half of its research portfolio.
