State Prioritizes Funding To Aid Small Hospitals

October 9, 2015

"I'm grateful to Governor Malloy for restoring these funds which in turn, provide critical services and public safety for Ansonia and Derby residents," said Deputy Speaker of the House Linda M. Gentile. "Griffin Hospital is our largest employer, so a stable job situation for employees is vital."

The Office of Policy and Management announced that the state will distribute $14.1 million to small hospitals through the Small Hospital Pool. With massive differences between large hospitals and small ones in profit margins—differences of hundreds of millions of dollars annually—OPM is taking this proactive action to support six small hospitals.
