Yale New Haven Health Seeks to Acquire Milford Hospital

Yale New Haven Health is trying to acquire Milford Hospital, one of the last independent hospitals in Connecticut.

The Hartford Courant reports that if approved by regulators, Milford Hospital employees would become employees of Bridgeport Hospital.

Bridgeport Hospital is already a member of the Yale New Haven Health system.

Milford Hospital says that becoming part of Bridgeport Hospital, with support from Yale New Haven Health, would give it financial stability.

Milford Hospital serves about 50,000 patients in Fairfield and New Haven counties.

The acquisition would be the third major hospital restructuring this year in western Connecticut.

In March, Hartford HealthCare said it was planning to acquire a medical center in Bridgeport and Western Connecticut Health Network said it was merging with a network of hospitals in New York state.
