Governor Raimondo Issues Statement on Status of Hospital Merger Discussions

07/16/2019
PROVIDENCE, RI- Today, Governor Raimondo issued the following statement:

"I'm disappointed that the parties were not able to come to an agreement. I continue to believe that a locally-run, academic medical center is what's in the best interest of Rhode Island. I have encouraged the parties to keep an open mind, remain open to future discussions, and to continue to pursue expanded collaboration that could pave the way to further integration down the road."
