A New Haven County hospital is considering integration with another hospital down Interstate 95.

On Wednesday, Milford Hospital announced its and Yale New Haven Health’s Boards of Trustees voted to explore a “broad integration” of Milford Hospital and Bridgeport Hospital.

The boards cited the goal “to sustain strong access to high quality care and enhanced operational efficiency” as a reason for a potential integration.

In 2014, Milford Hospital worked with Yale New Haven Hospital and Bridgeport Hospital to house their respective Inpatient Rehabilitation Units.

If an agreement is reached, Milford Hospital would be acquired by Bridgeport Hospital. To move forward, the deal would require state and federal regulatory as well as full board approvals.

“We deeply respect the board, leadership and employees of Milford Hospital and look forward to the opportunity to develop an extraordinary partnership,” said Bridgeport Hospital President and CEO William M. Jennings.

Bridgeport Hospital is a member of Yale New Haven Health.
