Connecticut hospitals see surge in regulatory actions
Connecticut Business News Journal, March 6, 2008
In their most recent checkups, Connecticut hospitals have been showing signs of stress: The state's Department of Public Health has announced six regulatory actions by the agency in the first two months of this year, compared with 12 such actions in all of 2007. Regulators say the actions reflect the state's tough rules and political priorities as the Connecticut's population ages. Patient advocates point to hospital management issues even as CEO salaries swell.
