Officials said the state of Vermont will get $30 million in federal funds and insurance payments toward the $42 million total price tag to replace the state hospital in Waterbury, which was made unusable by flooding from Tropical Storm Irene. Governor Peter Shumlin and others released the figures Tuesday while they were marking the start of construction on the Green Mountain Psychiatric Care Center, a 25-bed facility next to the Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin. Construction of the Berlin facility is expected to cost $28.5 million.
