Sen. Republican Leader Stephen Harding, Sen. Heather Somers, Ranking Senator on the Public Health Committee and Sen. Jeff Gordon, a medical doctor and a member of the Public Health Committee issued the following statement regarding the negotiations involving Yale New Haven Health and Prospect Medical Holdings.

“We are encouraged that the governor and the CEOs met today for an extended period of time. Bringing the parties together is a positive development, and the discussions must continue. We are also encouraged to hear that there should not be a concern that any hospitals will close. We remain available to all stakeholders to assist with a swift resolution on this matter. Our collective communities’ health care accessibility – as well as access to health care jobs – depends on it.”
