ECHN Invites Community To Public Forums

Eastern Connecticut Health Network (ECHN), in cooperation with the Town of Vernon and Town of Manchester, invites community members to one of two public forums to learn more about ECHN’s proposed Asset Purchase Agreement (APA) with Tenet Healthcare Corporation (Tenet) and Yale New Haven Health System (Yale New Haven).

These public forums will be held on:

Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Rockville High School Auditorium
6 p.m.

Thursday, May 1, 2014
H. Louise Ruddell Auditorium
Manchester Memorial Hospital
(Seating is limited) 
6 p.m.

In addition to ECHN senior management representatives and the members of its Board of Trustee’s Transaction Committee, representatives from Yale New Haven and Tenet will also be present at these forums.

In the meantime, ECHN has created a booklet, which can be found on our website (, that provides a detailed explanation of how evolving healthcare payment methodologies, transitions to new delivery of care models, pension-funding obligations, state taxes and federal sequestration are impacting the health system.

ECHN looks forward to meeting and speaking with community members.
