Yale New Haven, Connecticut Children's Medical Center table partnership talks

Yale New Haven (Conn.) Children's Hospital and Hartford-based Connecticut Children's Medical Center have tabled talks to combine operations, according to the Hartford Courant.

Last fall, the two hospitals agreed to discuss a partnership to create a new regional system for pediatric care. However, the hospitals paused negotiations after failing to agree on how the new business would be governed, a Yale New Haven official told the Hartford Courant.  

Yale New Haven officials wanted to establish a new combined children's hospital on the Yale New Haven campus with its own board and leadership, Cynthia Sparer, executive director of Yale New Haven Children's Hospital, told the Hartford Courant.

However, Connecticut Children's CEO Jim Shmerling said the proposed plan would not have allowed the new hospital to run independently in its current form. "It could not be independent and that's where we drew the line," he told the Hartford Courant
