Sale Of Bristol Hospital On Track

10333373_711441208916921_8039902370128034286_oBRISTOL – Late Tuesday afternoon, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, signed Senate Bill 35 which helps clear the way for the planned sale of Bristol Hospital to Tenet Healthcare Corp. The CT Mirror reports “

The change was prompted by the effort by the national for-profit hospital chain Tenet Healthcare to acquire Waterbury, Bristol, Rockville General and Manchester Memorial hospitals, in partnership with the Yale New Haven Health System. Lawmakers from those areas wanted to eliminate the state’s prohibition on for-profit hospitals employing physicians, while groups with concerns about for-profit hospitals pushed legislators for more restrictions on changes in hospital ownership. Other legislators had concerns about hospitals buying up physician practices.

The measure came together in the final hours of the legislative session last month. Less than an hour after it received final approval, Tenet and the Yale system released a statement that warned that unintended consequences of the bill could make it difficult for the company to move forward in Connecticut. That prompted some legislators who helped broker the deal — which they said had Tenet’s blessing — to question whether Tenet was pushing Malloy to veto the bill or seeking additional accommodations.”
