Danbury-based Western Connecticut Health Network and New York-based Health Quest announced Wednesday they have merged to create a $2.4 billion system called Nuvance Health. The announcement came the same day regulators approved a certificate of need application to transfer ownership of both health systems into a single, newly formed not-for-profit entity. The name Nuvance was derived from a combination of "new" and "advance," officials said. The combined system will care for patients across New York's Hudson Valley and western Connecticut, officials said.  The merger comes a little more than a year after the two systems formally agreed to create a new system.
