Why would a merger between ODU and EVMS require a bunch of money? Seems to me that there would be significant savings from synergies.

Recent trends are for academic medical centers to operate independent of the non-medical campus. There are exceptions like Vandy and a few others, but more and more, these are either separate or preparing to become separate. AMCs to require a lot of money and generally their employees, research, and operations are much more expensive.

All that said, there is NO reason that the state-owned EVMS shouldn't be branded ODU Medical Center. EVMS as a name really means little outside of our state and would get a boost in branding from just changing the logo. And it should still remain a separate entity. Win-Win.

My prediction is that the State of Virginia will allow it to become a distantly-branded medical center like W&M Medical Center instead. We've seem them do favors for VT, allowing them a medical school in Roanoke from 40 minutes away. They do what they want, when they want. But consistency across all state-owned institutions? Forget it.

More good stuff;
Quote:The Education Trust, an organization that promotes high academic achievement for students at all levels, recently recognized Old Dominion University as one of the nation's top 15 higher education institutions with African American student graduation rates that were significantly higher than averages for comparable higher education institutions.
