History[edit]

In July 2014 Tenet Healthcare announced that the hospital would be acquired by a Tenet subsidiary, with the hospital's religious directives and uncompensated care policies remaining intact. Tenet was chosen by the hospital after a four-year selection process.[4]

This deal, and three others Tenet had planned in the state, unraveled when Tenet expressed concern with the conditions on the sale set by the state of Connecticut.

In September 2015, Saint Mary's Hospital was acquired by Livonia, Michigan based Trinity Health.[5]
