ABSTRACT
The article discusses the announcement made by Waterbury Hospital to join the joint venture between LHP Hospital Group and Saint Mary's Hospital. The venture is intended to address issues including lack of capital access, need for upgrade of facilities, and market size to support competing hospitals. The author shares that hospital executives and policymakers deal with a healthcare system that rewards size and scale, and antitrust enforcers who prevent consolidation of power in one player.
