MANCHESTER — Catholic Medical Center and Elliot Hospital said they were controlling access and enhancing security after police said a “generic threat” was made against the hospitals over the weekend.

“Our patrol division increased patrols in and around the hospitals during the past 36 hours while investigators worked tirelessly following up on multiple leads to determine the identity of the suspect,” said police Lt. Brian O’Keefe.

The threat was made around 3 a.m. Sunday.
