Connecticut Hospital Association Issues Dire Report on CT Hospitals

March 11, 2014

ctThe state’s 30 acute care hospitals have lost 1,400 jobs in the last year and their operating income was down by $175 million in 2013 compared with the year before, the Connecticut Hospital Association said.

The Hartford Courant said the dire report, ahead of official filings, is aimed at lawmakers and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy as the association works to repeal a tax that it says is hurting the public by forcing cutbacks in services.

“Hospitals have done extraordinary things to minimize the impact of the tax on hospital patients. But it is very challenging,” the Wallingford-based association said in a written release, which also said the hospitals have “reduced staff salaries and benefits.”
