Naples News Interview with Jackson Labs VP

Naples News has an interesting interview with Jackson Labs vice president and COO Chuck Hewett, regarding potential plans to build a hospital, a charter school, and more, next to the Jackson Labs facility near Ave Maria University. An excerpt from Hewett:
It would not make any sense of us at all to come to an area like Collier County where there's no research infrastructure, no research hospital, no medical school, unless we could envision a future where those would start to come together.

We do envision that. I fact, I’ve had discussions as recently as this morning over breakfast with a party who is very interested in creating a hospital next to us. It would be a specialty hospital at first, perhaps a general hospital over time. We're having conversations with a party that would like to have a science and math high school at the site. We very much will need to attract a good medical school with a research and clinical focus.

And I think it's fair to say that the land owner under the right terms would be willing to donate land to all of those not-for-profit entities.
That would be the nucleus of a community that would then start to grow.
Is he talking about Monaghan in this last paragraph? As long as there is no formal or immediate material cooperation with evil such as human embryo stem cell research, then bring on the development!
