YNHHS and Prospect Medical Holdings Agreement
As a not-for-profit health system, Yale New Haven Health (YNHHS) maintains a strong commitment to serving those in need. Our growth has been guided by this singular commitment: to bring the benefits of an academic health system to more patients across our region.
Today, with the proposed acquisition of Prospect Medical Holdings’ Waterbury Hospital, Manchester Memorial Hospital and Rockville General Hospital – hospitals that share our commitment to serving the community – we have an important opportunity to meet Connecticut’s evolving healthcare needs with exceptional, high-quality care and a continued dedication to the underserved.
We believe that the proposed transaction will enable us to build upon the strengths of each hospital and integrate the resources of YNHHS to improve the health of the communities and our region. It will allow us to increase local access to academic medicine, while preserving jobs in each community – with an unwavering focus on quality and safety.
The proposed transaction will create mutual benefits for YNHHS and the hospitals, for patients across Connecticut, and for the state economy – today and tomorrow.
