It’s complicated. That’s the best way to describe the ongoing relationship between Gov. Dannel Malloy and Connecticut’s hospitals. Malloy has significantly changed the rules of their game since he took office five years ago - and the changes show no signs of slowing down. The past two weeks brought significant announcements highlighting these changes. First, Malloy intervened to prevent further hospital consolidation, a trend that raises concerns about increased costs and fewer choices. Then, worsening deficit projections led the administration to halt $140 million in payments to hospitals.
