Waterbury Hospital and the affiliates of the Greater Waterbury Health Network (Alliance Medical Group, Cardiology Associates of Greater Waterbury, Greater Waterbury Imaging Center, Access Rehab, VNA Health at Home) are now officially a part of the Prospect Medical Holdings family—our transaction closed at 12:01 a.m. this morning.
This is an exciting next chapter for our entire organization. The GWHN Board of Directors, under the leadership of Chairman Carl Contadini, worked diligently to ensure that Waterbury Hospital, a vital community asset, would be preserved and strengthened for generations to come.
Prospect Medical Holdings is an innovative healthcare services company that owns and operates hospitals, clinics and outpatient centers in diverse areas in California, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Texas—and now Connecticut! The Greater Waterbury Health Network Board of Directors selected Prospect as a partner for our organization because the company will help us meet the goal of providing sustainable, high quality, accessible healthcare to our region. Prospect also made a commitment to: invest in outpatient services, physician recruitment, and capital upgrades; bolster medical education; and, most importantly, meet the needs of our community. The Board is confident that Prospect is the absolute right choice for our Network, our Hospital, and our region.
Our community and our patients can expect to continue receiving the highest quality of care delivered by the same professionals they know and trust. Our clinical excellence will remain a priority and we will maintain our focus on keeping our promise to our patients—that is, keeping them at the center of everything we do.
And, soon, you’ll begin seeing the additional benefits of our acquisition by Prospect Medical Holdings.
