Regulatory Updates:
  • The public hearing regarding Sharon Hospital’s application to close its Labor & Delivery unit took place on December 6, 2022. Following the hearing, the Office of Health Strategy is considering all information provided by Sharon Hospital, hospital staff, public officials, and community members to guide their decision on the application. As we await OHS’s decision, our Labor and Delivery unit continues to remain open and operational. Sharon Hospital’s leadership thanks all those who participated in the hearing, and we look forward to coming together to support the hospital’s vibrant future.
  • On December 12, 2022, the Connecticut Office of Health Strategy (OHS) marked Sharon Hospital’s application regarding the proposed consolidation of the essential care currently offered in our ICU into a new Progressive Care Unit as "complete."  Under this proposed plan, Sharon Hospital will continue providing the vast majority of our current services—including ventilation and telemetry monitoring—while more effectively assigning our space, staff and resources. The next step in the CON process is a public hearing held by OHS, date to be determined.
