Advanced Connections

Continuously advancing the care we provide to patients is the hallmark of Hartford Hospital.

It is what motivates and inspires us, and it is what distinguishes us as we pursue our mission of excellence in healthcare delivery, education and research, with a clear focus on our patients.

I am proud to work with an incredibly talented staff of professionals who bring vitality and vision to our mission as an academic health center, enabling us to bring advanced care to our communities, and to the people we serve. Our transformative work continues to create an exceptional customer experience as we elevate our quality and safety platforms.

For the work we have done, we have achieved recognition locally and nationally. U.S. News & World Report recently ranked Hartford Hospital Number One in the Hartford metro area and high performing in psychiatry, nephrology, urology and orthopedics. As the major academic medical center and tertiary-care facility within Hartford HealthCare, we continue to play a pivotal role in creating a seamless system of integrated care for the people we serve. We have introduced many “firsts” this year in cardiology, orthopedics, bariatrics, cancer care and other areas of critical need. We are revolutionizing care, and building state-of-the-art environments in which to deliver it, such as our Bone and Joint Institute, now under construction.

We are transforming the care we provide today and preparing for the future, with an unwavering commitment to our patients and community. This commitment colors all we do. With change and challenge come opportunity, and Hartford Hospital and Hartford HealthCare remain strongly positioned to succeed far into the future.

Our success would not be possible without all of you who bring your support, care, commitment and dedication to our hospital. My heartfelt thanks for all you have done, and will do in the future, as we continue to advance forward.
