UT's medical college is planning to join forces with another group to build a new $200 million hospital to help women and infants.
The new hospital will be in Memphis on UT's health science center campus. The university is teaming up with Regional Medical Center.
Their goal is to build a world-class facility that will help expectant mothers from across the region and babies.
Shelby County's infant death rate is nearly 10 per 1,000. That is an improvement, but officials say it matches some third-world countries.
