A model of the new Mohawk Valley Health System Downtown Utica hospital was on display at the Utica Public Library on Friday.

MVHS officials say the model shows the public how the Regional Medical Center will contribute to the revitalization of Downtown Utica.

Saveria Fuller of Utica is in favor of the downtown hospital project. Fuller says the new hospital is needed to improve both health care and the economy.

The model will be on display for public viewing at the Kirkland Town Library on Monday.
