Sen. Gordon Reacts to Yale-New Haven Health’s Impasse with Prospect Medical Holdings

May 3, 2024

State Sen. Jeff Gordon (R-Woodstock), member of the Public Health Committee and a medical doctor, released the following statement regarding reports of Yale-New Haven Health’s difficulties working with Prospect Medical Holdings, impacting its acquisition of Rockville General Hospital, Manchester Memorial Hospital, and Waterbury Hospital:


“I’ve been in ongoing communications with Yale-New Haven Health and local leaders of Prospect Medical Holdings. While I cannot speak to the legal components of this matter, Yale-New Haven announced today that its good-faith negotiations with Prospect to purchase Rockville General Hospital in Vernon and the Eastern CT Health Network have stalled due to Prospect’s lack of communication.


“This is an issue that must be resolved in a timely manner. Delays in Yale-New Haven’s state-approved opportunity to acquire our local hospitals will impact our entire community. That includes families, women, and seniors in need of medical care, and hundreds of local, dedicated employees working hard to make ends meet. I remain available to all stakeholders to assist with a swift resolution on this matter. Our community’s health and jobs depend on it,” he said.
