News outlets are reporting that LHP Hospital Group, the for-profit Texas company planning to purchase both Waterbury and St. Mary’s Hospitals, has sent a letter threatening to pull out of the deal unless the three sides came to agreement by last Friday. The plan was to merge the two hospitals in a new facility. One potential area of disagreement may be delivery of abortion services and other women’s health care. The Mayor is concerned the deal will fall apart; the hospitals are saying discussions continue.
