In view of the serious financial losses being incurred at Memorial, it is no secret that Care New England has pursued many different options for improving the hospital’s financial viability. This included the possibility of pursuing a single license for Memorial and Kent – a strategy that UNAP was aware of over one year ago. In fact, we engaged in discussions over a master agreement with UNAP that would allow for the transfer of employees among the hospitals.
For a variety of reasons right now, the work toward a single license for Kent and Memorial is no longer under consideration at Care New England.
We will continue to explore every option to improve the financial strength of our system and look forward to the input and cooperation of all our partners.
