(OCT. 21, 2013) Ira Bernstein, M.D., senior associate dean for research at the UVM College of Medicine, discusses the $15.8 million project to replace the mother-baby unit at Fletcher Allen Health Care in an October 21, 2013, story in the Burlington Free Press. He called "relocation of the mother-baby unit long overdue," and notes that the separation of the birthing center and mother-baby unit took place in 2004 when a new floor was added to the McClure building to accommodate a modern birthing center. The new unit is expected to be complete by April of 2015.
