Tenet, Waterbury Hospital deal could be revived

There might still be hope for a deal between Waterbury (Conn.) Hospital and Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare, according to a Hartford Courant report.

Tenet planned to acquire Waterbury Hospital along with four other Connecticut hospitals: Bristol Hospital; Saint Mary's Hospital in Waterbury; and Eastern Connecticut Health Network, based in Manchester, which owns Rockville General in Vernon and Manchester Memorial.

However, in December, Tenet announced it would no longer pursue those efforts due to proposed conditions state regulators put on the hospital operator's purchase of Waterbury Hospital.

"The extensive list of proposed conditions to be imposed on the Waterbury Hospital transaction, which is only the first of four transactions for which we've made applications, has led us to conclude that the approach to regulatory oversight in Connecticut would not enable Tenet to operate the hospitals successfully for the benefit of all stakeholders," Tenet said in a previous statement.

But in the near future, a top Tenet executive plans to meet with Connecticut Senate leaders about the deal, according to the report.

The report states that "it's not new negotiations, it's just a conversation."
