Budget Deal Proposes to increase hospital tax plan

Yale New Haven Health System employees speak out to Help Our Hospitals

When Yale New Haven Health System leaders asked employees to contact their legislators in March about budget cuts, taxes and other proposals that would adversely affect hospitals, nearly 9,000 YNHHS employees and supporters contacted their elected officials. Many reached out more than once — sending nearly 28,000 messages to legislators between March and May.

"This was an extraordinary grassroots effort on the part of our staff and extended hospital and health system family," said Marna P. Borgstrom, YNHHS president and CEO. "While we are disappointed in the legislative outcome, our elected officials heard us loud and clear and we did have an impact."

Performance Incentive Plan (PIP) results through the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, which ended March 31, show progress in some areas, but also a need for improvement in others to meet goals as the hospital moves toward the end of the year. If PIP were paid today, eligible employees would receive up to 1.51 percent of salary.

PIP results are measured in four hospital-wide performance areas: patient safety and quality, patient experience, employee engagement and financial performance. Each category receives equal weight of 25 percent.
