The CT Attorney General’s office has concluded their analysis of anti-trust implications of Yale-New Haven Hospital’s proposal to purchase The Hospital of St. Raphael and will not seek to block the sale. The sale would leave New Haven with only one hospital raising concerns about higher prices for services, less care and higher medical debt for uninsured and underinsured patients, lower access to care for all patients, and less responsiveness to community needs. The AG’s office coordinated their investigation with the Federal Trade Commission, which must also approve the sale. Responding to a request from the AG’s office, YNHH has agreed to “maintain current levels of charitable healthcare and financial assistance and provide the same level of service and assistance to patients receiving care on the St. Raphael’s campus.”
