I'm told by a friend that works at the hospital that plans are all but dead and they are just going to build onto the existing building.

If they are making plans to add to the existing building then this issue is probably pretty much dead and wont happen.  Original plans were to build on campus 2011.  If they are making plans to add to existing building then any addition would not be complete until around 2011.  Hmmm,  No wonder we havent heard anything lately.

BRCH has to right their ship financially before they can commit to a construction date. They're in a muck right now for several reasons and it may take them 5-10 years to get out of it.

Furthermore – as you may have read – they didn't even get the donations from the community in the amount they wanted. It's got to be a hard pitch to people: "Yes, we already HAVE a hospital but we want a NEW ONE." I also know that they got a gift for a robotics surgery center within that new hospital and it would be a shame if that fell through. If it's true that they're going to build onto BRCH instead, I would hope the robotics surgery center gets a home there.

Look, worse comes to worse, BRCH stays where it is and we just rotate medical/nursing students through there. They're already doing it now anyway. FAU's medical program won't falter as a result of not having the new hospital on-campus and it may be a blessing anyway since there isn't a whole lot of undeveloped land left and FAU could use that area for something else (coughHOUSINGcough)

Anyway, I was told that FAU pitched its own medical building to the Florida legislature. I don't know the details of it except to say that it would be significantly smaller than the existing hospital. The upside to this is that we would own it rather than lease out space to another entity.

I don't know if that proposal was approved or not. If I hear anything, I'll let you know.

I wonder what happened to dip sticks. I mean I know it was just dyed sugar with a stick (that didn't taste very good, even though I ate it anyway), but man I really miss it.
