Acquisition of Day Kimball Hospital from the Catholic health care system raises concerns

The Connecticut Health Strategy raises questions about the proposed deal between the Massachusetts-based Catholic health system Covenant Health and Day Kimball Hospital in rural Putnam. If the deal is approved, the new owners will remove some of the hospital’s reproductive health services.

Under the terms of the deal, Covenant Health will acquire Day Kimball by bringing the troubled rural health system into its larger network and absorbing tens of millions of dollars of its debt. Day Kimball is one of the few remaining independent hospitals in the state and is performing poorly financially compared to other hospitals in Connecticut in recent years.
