U of A in Downtown Phoenix.. Does This Smell Funny?

There is a lot of talk about U of A building a new cancer center in downtown Phoenix.  There is no denying that this would help fulfill long ago given promises made by the Phoenix Biomedical Campus.  I am not sure where I stand on this.  I just know something is rotten in the state of Denmark.  U of A pushing so hard to be in Phoenix and Mayor Gordon seemingly so willing to help them find money to borrow.

Then all the talk of Maricopa Integrated Healthcare System (MIHS) partnering with U of A to create a medical center in downtown.  I want to be really optimistic because the thought of increased biotechnology sectors and increased health care are big wins.  However, I am reminded of the phrase of “if it sounds too good to be true it probably is”.  So help me out.  Tell me what I’m missing here or am I just being unduly paranoid?
