LAWSUITS NEWS & LEGAL INFORMATION

Donated Property

Stamford, CT: (Jan-18-08) State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal's office brought charges against Stamford Health System Inc., over services provided at the Rehabilitation Center of Southwestern Connecticut. The suit stemmed from a 2004 merger of Stamford Hospital with the Palmers Hill Road center. Blumenthal said that when donated property is used for something other than its original purpose, his office must approve the new use. The AG's office stated that Palmers Hill property had been donated to Easter Seals for rehabilitation services, and the organization was no longer involved at the site, sparking off the investigation.

As part of a settlement reached, the Stamford Hospital parent company will pay $4.6 million to Easter Seals Connecticut Inc. for Stamford area vocational rehabilitation and development services for children. It also will provide another $15 million over 10 years for medical and rehabilitation services at its own facilities, including the Tully Health Center. The $19.6 million settlement with Stamford Health System Inc. resolves all pending litigation. [STAMFORD ADVOCATE: DONATED PROPERTY]
