Our Future Together: Caring Never Changes

Health care is changing,
but our commitment to the community never will.


In August 2013, the ECHN Board of Trustees announced that it had moved forward with a non-binding letter of intent (LOI) to negotiate the sale of ECHN to a newly formed partnership between Tenet Healthcare Corporation (formerly Vanguard Health Systems) and Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS).

ECHN, Tenet and Yale New Haven are currently negotiating a definitive Asset Purchase Agreement, which when finalized will be presented for approval to the ECHN Board of Trustees and then to the ECHN Corporators.

We are committed to keeping this entire acquisition process transparent. This section of our website has been created to keep you informed of the latest news, public forums, additional information pertaining to changes in health care and a way to contact us with your feedback or any questions you may have.

We feel strongly that the corporations and individuals associated with this acquisition share in our values and commitment to caring for the local community. We hope that the decision to partner with Tenet and Yale New Haven will have your support.
