Hospitals to merge

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2012 - Winter


Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) and the Hospital of Saint Raphael (HSR) announced in September that they had signed an agreement that would create a single hospital with two campuses. According to officials of both hospitals, the merger will enhance health care quality, access, and efficiency for Greater New Haven and the broader region.

Under the agreement, YNHH will purchase the assets of HSR; HSR will continue to provide medical care consistent with the ethical and religious directives of Catholic Health Care Services; HSR liabilities will be addressed; and YNHH will make investments in the HSR campus and expand its clinical activity.

With the agreement in place, the Connecticut Attorney General’s Office, the Connecticut Office of Health Care Access, and the Federal Trade Commission will begin a regulatory review of the transaction.
