UCONNHEALTHThe University of Connecticut Healthcare Center announced an end to primary pediatric clinical services as of October 1 of this year. Services of the practice included newborn, well care, immunizations and basic well office visits and physicals through adolescence.

The State is potentially investigating whether the facility improperly skipped the “Certificate of Need” process in making a change to available medical services. Because the pediatric team will provide services at its other locations, it claims it did not need to file a certificate of need for this change.
