The state’s top-performing hospital was Yale New Haven, with revenues of about $232.8 million.
On a system-wide basis, Yale New Haven Health Systems – which includes Bridgeport and Greenwich – again led, with revenues of $302.1 million, while Western Connecticut Health Network, which includes Danbury and Norwalk, recorded revenues of $47.6 million.
