Sen. Harding statement on Nuvance Health’s deal with Northwell

March 1, 2024

For Immediate Release

Senate Republican Leader Stephen Harding, whose district includes New Milford and Sharon, today issued the following statement regarding Nuvance Health’s deal with Northwell.

“I understand the financial challenges Nuvance has been facing, and I am encouraged to hear that ‘patient-facing’ jobs are not in jeopardy. I am also encouraged to hear that key investments will be made and that health care access will be increased. However, like many, I have significant concerns for myself and my fellow neighbors in the 30th Senate District. Ensuring that existing medical services in our local hospitals remain fully open and operational, particularly Sharon Hospital’s Labor and Delivery Unit, is of the utmost importance to me, and I hope it remains of utmost importance to Connecticut’s Office of Health Strategy as they review this merger.”
